Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Anthropology Collection
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Anthropology Collection (UWAC) is managed by the University of Wisconsin Department of Anthropology. It includes research and teaching collections representing three subfields in anthropology (archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology). These collections consist of both objects/artifacts and associated archives. The collections are all stored in secured locations within the Sewell Social Science Building, and access is restricted and monitored.
