We are the Research Division of the Department of Anthropology, at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. We provide a variety of archeological and cultural resources management services to federal, state, and private organizations. Our primary research focuses on archeological investigation of the prehistoric cultures and peoples that occupied the Northern Great Plains. Geographically, most of our work takes place in the Dakotas, Wyoming, and Minnesota.

The Department of Anthropology's Archaeological Field School is usually run in conjunction with one or more of our research projects. The field school is directed by Dr. Dennis L. Toom, our Program Director, with assistance from departmental and research division faculty and staff. The field school application is available online as a pdf file (get the latest Adobe Reader); the application is also available in the departmental office (Babcock Hall, Room 104) or the research division's office (Babcock Hall, Room 301).

We have various full-time faculty and staff that provide a number of in-house specialities. We also consult with other organizations who provide us with additional research capabilities.

We have an extensive collection of published reports for the hundreds of projects we have completed.

We have periodic employment opportunities for field and laboratory projects. Please contact the Anthropology Research administrative assistant for information on positions that are available. Employment applications are available online or in Anthropology Research's main office (Babcock Hall, Room 301).
