Central Wisconsin Archaeology Center

Since October of 1997, the Central Wisconsin Archaeology Center (CWAC) has dedicated itself to the recovery and preservation of Central Wisconsin's cultural resources for current and future generations. CWAC pursues scientific excellence while encouraging public education and an appreciation of the past. Archaeological rescue excavations are designed to save a portion of a cultural heritage which would otherwise be lost forever. In addition to being a community resource, CWAC also serves as an employment opportunity for University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point students. This employment opportunity provides valuable work experience and income. The students are able to apply the knowledge obtained in the classroom to actual research projects in archaeology.
The State of Wisconsin's Regional Archaeology Program has been discontinued due to budget cuts to the State Historical Society. Regional Centers such as CWAC located at UW-Stevens Point do continue to collect historic and archaeological data and provide limited survey, identification and site-assessment consulting services to interested public and private parties.
