The Pacific Slope Archaeological Laboratory is housed in Oregon State University’s Department of Anthropology. Our mission is to generate knowledge about the first peoples of western North America by discovering, recovering, and studying key archaeological and geoarchaeological information.  We pursue this mission by working on collaborative and grants-based research projects with state, federal and private partners. We also offer a number of technical services on a fee basis to outside groups pursuing their own archaeological and geoarchaeological problems.
