This research project focuses on a small collection of archaeologically recovered ceramic figurines from northern highland Ecuador. The project involves descriptive analysis of the artifacts and broader research into the types and significance of figurines found in archaeological contexts in the northern Andes.


Undergraduate majors in Anthropology, Geology, Art, and Material Sciences are especially welcome to apply. Students with some background in Archaeology (e.g., ANT 2200, 3020, or any field school) will receive priority consideration. Some familiarity with Spanish is also desirable.
