Commission for Archaeology of Non-European Cultures (KAAK) Bonn

Dürenstr. 35-37

The Commission was founded in 1979 on the occasion of the Institute's 150th anniversary. It concerns itself with archaeological research, principally in Asia, Africa and the Americas. It's scientific goal is to shed light on and provide archaeological support for historical research outside Europe and the classical civilizations. This is done with a range of interdisciplinary subjects through research and individual excavation projects abroad in close co-operation with the scientific institutions of the host country.
