“Get Your Hands on the Past”

The Archaeology Research Center of the University of Southern California houses over 5,000 ancient artifacts in the Ahmanson Center Building. It is directed by Bruce Zuckerman, and curated by Lynn Swartz Dodd.

USC’s Archaeology Research Center, also known as the “ARC Lab,” was established as an active teaching collection of antiquities from the ancient Near East and Mediterranean.

Students from the University of Southern California, Hebrew Union College and Loyola Marymount University are able to gain hands-on experience with artifacts such as pottery, seals, figurines and cuneiform tablets.
