Contributions Series

Our main publications series, Contributions of the University of California Archaeological Research Facility, Berkeley, was started in 1965.  Initially, most titles were related to California archaeology; today volumes in the series cover California, South Asia, Egypt, the South Pacific, and Latin America.

Special Publications

We also produce a number of special publications, featuring such topics as studies of Native Californian groups, Hawaiian archaeology, and lithic studies. All of our available publications can be purchased through the mail by filling in our order form and sending it to us with payment by check. Alternatively, if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can come by in person during regular business hours and purchase as many volumes as you like and avoid paying for shipping.
