Excavating the Collections: Redefining Archaeological Practice in the 21st Century through Utilizing Existing Assemblages
Author(s): Ann Stansell
The Northridge Archaeological Research Center (NARC), which began as a student club on the campus of San Fernando Valley State College in 1969, was involved in more than 800 cultural resource management projects throughout Southern California before falling inactive in 1996. Accessibility of the collections has been variable over the years. In recent years however, these legacy collections which are now housed at and administered by the Anthropological Research Institute at California State University Northridge (CSUN) in the Department of Anthropology, are becoming more accessible to students as graduate projects. This paper highlights the legacy collections in the holdings of CSUN’s Anthropological Research Institute and their future research potential.
