The Arizona State Museum Repository
Established in 1984, the ASM repository receives and manages collections excavated on both public and private lands across the state. In just over 20 years, our facility has grown to be the largest non-federal archaeological repository in the country with one of the largest research collections in the world focusing on the historic and prehistoric cultures of Arizona. The collections currently include c. 20,000 cubic feet of comparative sherds, chipped and ground stone, shell artifacts, faunal bone, and environmental samples. These objects, as well as accompanying field notes and reports, are available for research.
If you are a professional archaeologist wishing to deposit collections with us, see Forms & Guidelines for the appropriate forms and for a copy of the Repository Manual.
If you are a researcher wishing to request access to the collections, please contact Arthur Vokes by email or at 520-626-9109.
