Welcome to the Millsaps Institute for Interdisciplinary Archaeological Research.
M I I A R
.
As you may know, archaeology is the study of past human behavior.
What did people do in past times, and why?

Why did the Maya build pyramids?
Who were the ancestors of the ancient Greeks?
Why did the Romans invade the Holy Land?

Clovis Point
Millsaps Collections
10-11,000 years old

In fact, such questions are asked daily in many of the academic departments at Millsaps College, but in particular in the Departments of History, Classical Studies, Religious Studies and Sociology-Anthropology.
In a jungle in Yucatan, Mexico, students and faculty from Millsaps excavate remains of the city of Kiuic, seeking to explain the fall of the Mayan kings.
In the hills of Mallakastra, Albania, at the city of Apollonia, students and faculty from Millsaps explore the reasons for Greek colonization of "barbarian" lands.

IF you have questions about the past;
IF you want to know more about the MIIAR;
IF you are eager to travel to exotic places and like the
idea of participating in an archaeological field research project;
