Small liberal arts colleges rarely offer all four areas of these areas of study – archaeology and cultural and social, linguistic and biological anthropology – but Hamilton does. And you will have a chance to do plenty of hands-on learning, maybe even at one of the earliest archaeological sites in North America.

A student zeroes in, drawn by a new museum and a focus on the U.S.

Lillia McEnaney ’17 has pursued archaeology since high school. As a high school junior she was drawn to Hamilton's program for its focus on the U.S. and Canada. Once on the Hill, McEnaney discovered a related passion – religious studies. Her particular archaeological interest lies in the U.S. Southwest and examining designs on pueblo pottery from a scientific and religious studies perspective.  Not surprisingly, McEnaney majors in archaeology and religious studies. Her accomplishments include publishing an article in the international journal Museum Anthropology and curating exhibitions at the Institute for American Indian Studies.
