Department of Anthropology

Facilities Information

The Department of Anthropology is housed in a historic building, College Hall, which has been remodeled to include spacious well-equipped, modern laboratories. As well as several general laboratories used in the analysis of artifact collections.

The department also maintains ethnographic and archaeological research collections, and study collections of floral, faunal, palynological, lithic, soil/sediment and ceramic materials. The Museum of Anthropology and the new Plateau Center are additional resources for our students.

Other units on campus offer facilities for electron microscopy, as well as NAA, XRF, and ICP-MS analysis of materials. Members of the faculty regularly offer archaeological field schools and conduct other field research projects that provide graduate students with opportunities to gain experience and to obtain data for thesis or dissertation research.
