Hats of Archaeology
The Image Collections of the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology feature many different kinds of hats from several different eras. Our earliest photos show the late 1930s and early 1940s, pre-World War II hats, usually adorning men. In the 1950s we start to see a few women joing the excavation crews and hats become a little more diverse. In the 1970s, archaeologists and field crews are often seen in hard hats.
These photographs are generally ordered chronologically (the earliest photos at the top; the most recent photos near the bottom).
Wide-brimmed hats, safari-looking hats, baseball caps... how many different kinds of hats can you identify?
