Archaeological Research Facility on eScholarship

The Archaeological Research Facility (ARF), founded in 1948 as the University of California Archaeological Survey, is a research unit supporting UC Berkeley archaeologists who are faculty members and researchers from a wide-range of academic departments. The ARF provides equipment for field and laboratory research, laboratory space, and internal funding for archaeological studies. In 1965 the ARF began to publish data-rich monographs in the Contributions to the Archaeological Research Facility serial and the ARF Special Publications volumes. Digital versions of most volumes (1965-2005) are available in PDF format at the Foster Anthropology Library's AnthroHub website. Complementing the monograph series, the ARF site on eScholarship hosts digital reports produced from field work and laboratory analysis by Berkeley archaeologists.
