Welcome to The Tandy Institute for Archaeology

Established in 1983, the Tandy Institute has served as an umbrella institute for various centers, museums, and academic programs that contribute to archaeology and archaeological research on the campus of Southwestern Seminary.

The Institute represents a Southern Baptist effort to establish a scholarly presence, and impact the discipline of biblical archaeology through a well funded archaeology research and training program. The Tandy will train a new generation of biblical archaeologists and inspire biblical scholars to engage in current research in the discipline of archaeology.
