On 21 October 2016, the Stanford Archaeology Center is hosting a Public Symposium and Exhibits Open House showcasing new research on the theme of "before Stanford."

In Stanford’s 125th year, new scholarship is remaking the university’s founding narrative, which in fact stretches back over 6000 years and includes diverse cultures and peoples. Hear from scholars exploring inward and outward from the Stanford center as they integrate history, archaeology, and community-driven research. Their work reveals deep, ongoing ties between campus lands and many interconnected communities throughout the Bay Area and beyond.
