The mission of the Lanier Center for Archaeology is to conduct archaeological research. The focus of this research is primarily archaeology of the biblical world. Naturally, this expands to focus on the archaeology of the Ancient Near East and the eastern Mediterranean world of the first millennium AD. Upon
the creation of the Lanier Center for Archaeology, the center immediately took on the research of six excavation projects.
The Lanier Center for Archaeology supports eight projects in Israel (3), Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt, Sudan and Kazakhstan. These projects span the second millennium BC/BCE to Late Antiquity, and one project dates to the Middle Ages.
