The Midwest Archeological Center was created to provide the best archeological and collections management assistance possible to national parks and partners located in the Midwest Region of the National Park Service. The center focuses on the study, interpretation and preservation of archeological resources within the National Park System in addition to providing professional support and consultation to other federal, state and local government agencies. The Midwest Archeological Center staff provides expertise in geophysical, geoarcheological, and fur trade research specializations, as well as a wide range of other studies. During the 2015 field season, the staff worked on over 25 different projects in various parks throughout the Midwest Region. In addition to archeological and collections management expertise, the staff provides various entities with help in collecting, processing, and storing GPS data related to their projects.
