We have an impressive suite of facilities dedicated to research and teaching. They were fully refurbished in 2016.
You will receive full training in lab techniques and be able to develop advanced skills depending on your specialisation.
Used by all staff and students for practical classes and seminars.
Acts as a focus for knowledge sharing within the archaeology community. Informal Wednesday morning "hang-out" sessions allow staff and students to share latest research, problems with work and latest news and events.
Used for analysing glasses, ceramics and metals to understand why objects were used and particular materials selected. Also used for experiments to fuse glass and fire pottery.
The lab has a fume cupboard, furnace and sample preparation facilities, as well as powerful microscopes.
Current and recent projects include research on:
A dedicated space for the analysis and investigation of seeds and charcoal. It is a hub of cutting-edge research into a range of topics from human-environment interactions and food practices to trade, urbanisation and colonialism.
The lab houses a growing modern reference collection of plant material, identification manuals and a range of high quality micro and stereo scopes.
Current and recent projects include research on hunter-gatherer sites such as:
Allows for human and non-human remains to be analysed together. This simultaneous analysis leads to greater understanding of the bones themselves as well as the activities, health and behaviour of people and animals.
This cutting-edge approach is revolutionising our understanding of mainstream archaeological questions.
Allows us to prepare samples for isotope analysis. These analyses tell us about the diets and migration patterns of past people and animals.
In particular, we seek to connect ancient and modern data to explore how human-animal-environment relationships have changed, why, and with what consequence for the future.
We are committed to preserving and presenting heritage using digital technologies. We have recently refurbished our imaging lab to improve our 3D photogrammetry, geophysics and CAD model building capabilities.
Using the latest equipment and software we can create digital illustrations, 3D models and visualisations of archaeological artefacts and sites.
