Formerly known as the International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History (ICEAACH), the Center is undergoing changes. More on this as they develop. AsianArc, continues to lead the Department of Archaeology’s exciting teaching, research, and outreach initiatives in the archaeology of this region. With major support from the Henry Luce Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and private donors, AsianArc is an internationally-recognized hub for multi-disciplinary research and public outreach in East Asian archaeology and cultural heritage. AsianArc research collaborations, programs, seminars, and its major 7000 volume library collection provide an extraordinary and unique resource, serving scholars and students from around the globe who are interested in East Asian archaeology, cultural heritage management, anthropology, art history, pre-modern history, religion, and other related fields. AsianArc provides our Department with a major foothold in this increasingly important region in world archaeology and abundant research opportunities for BU students and faculty.
BU Center for Remote Sensing
The Center for Remote Sensing was established in 1986 as a facility for scientific research in the fields of archaeology, geography and geology. The center uses satellite images and other data from airborne and ground sensors to study the Earth and its resources, particularly groundwater. This includes the monitoring of environmental changes due to both natural processes and human activities.
