The Minnesota Historical Society's Archaeology Department in conjunction with the Minnesota Archaeological Research Program (MARP) is pleased to welcome you to internet access of our ongoing archaeological excavations. Through our "Windows to the Past" web pages you are invited to join us in discovering and exploring our heritage. Opening these windows will help you shed more "light" on what appears to be a shadowy past. Through our research we are illuminating the distant past and using that knowledge to give a deeper meaning for our lives.
This page is an open invitation to visit us and our archaeological research programs. Visitors to our field excavations learn first-hand and "hands-on" how archaeologists go about their work, what they are finding, and what it all means. This year over 2,900 individuals have visited our research sites and learned about archaeology. The excavations provide a unique opportunity to visit and work with archaeologists uncovering Minnesota's heritage. For those who cannot visit the Minnesota Historical Society's or other MARP excavations, information presented in our "Excavations On-line" provides internet citizens with updates of our progress at a number of projects around the world.
