Who Are We?
Established in October 2013, the new Institute for Southeast Asian Archaeology (ISEAA) continues and builds upon the decades-long archaeological research programs in Thailand and Laos at the University of Pennsylvania Museum.
Due to strategic decisions to downsize, Penn Museum ended funding for its research program for Southeast Asian archaeology in June 2013. ISEAA was founded to continue the research and publications of such as the Ban Chiang Project and the Middle Mekong Archeological Project (MMAP) . ISEAA also serves as a home for future research projects in Southeast Asian archaeology.
