  • University of Kansas Anthropological Research and Cultural Collections

    The University of Kansas Archaeological Research and Center curates approximately 2000 cubic feet of artifacts recovered from investigations of 23 Kansas City Hopewell Archaeological sites, which represents the largest holdings of materials from this culture in the United States. The Kansas City Hopewell represents the westernmost regional variant of the Hopewell archaeological complex that dates to the Middle Woodland or Early Ceramic (100 B.C. - 700 A.D.) period. These images are comprised images of artifacts and scanned photographs from five Hopewell sites in the Kansas City metropolitan area (a subset of the Art and Cultural Heritage Collection). For a more complete description of the collection, see the "kansascityhopewell" web site. The photos in this collection also are included within the broader Art & Cultural Heritage Collection.
