The Laboratory of Wisconsin Archaeology
Modern laboratory space for researching and teaching the archaeology of Wisconsin, eastern North America, and related topics
The newly-renovated Wisconsin Archaeology Lab provides the space, equipment, and reference collections necessary for carrying out archaeological research in the 21st century. The lab space is also heavily oriented around undergraduate education and was designed to facilitate hands-on learning.
Two iMac desktops, one Mac laptop, one Windows laptop, printers, scanner, and a Wacom drawing tablet are available for data analysis, digital cartography, and other tasks.
Electronic space-saver shelving units house collections. The lab itself is temperature-controlled and checked for pests weekly.
One 3D printer, photogrammetry software, and 3D modeling software are available for developing 3D images of artifacts, excavations, and archaeological sites.
Graduate student desks
Graduate students have dedicated desk space to study, conduct research, and hold office hours.
The lab is secured with a keycard passcode system. Access is limited only to lab members and office staff.
Microscopes and photography
The recent lab renovations includes several digital Dino-Lite microscopes, a binocular microscope, and a new artifact photography station.
