Advancing New Discoveries

Field work is at the heart of the Penn Museum’s mission to transform understanding of the human experience. A majority of Penn Museum curators, teaching specialists, research project managers, and consulting scholars are involved in active fieldwork projects, and in 2017, the Penn Museum supported, in total, field work at 43 projects in 21 countries, while other projects were in post-excavation seasons. Thank you for advancing new discovery through your support.
