Research Facilities

We offer state-of-the-art labs which facilitate a range of experimental archaeological analyses. A Sensofar S-Neox confocal and interferometry microscope, an Olympus BX53 reflected/transmitted light microscope, SteroZoom S8APO, Zeiss Stemi 2000C microscope connected to a digital camera, and a Dell T7600 Workstation for GIS and 3D rendering and modeling are available. In addition, a NextEngine 3D laser scanner with 0.005” accuracy allows for geometric morphometric analysis of archaeological specimens.

Collections The Department houses a Near Eastern collection of lithics, as well as the Dickson Collection of chert samples, which is the largest in the US both in size and scope. The department also houses a large Southeastern United States collection of artifacts from Creek habitations of varied time-periods. Our teaching collections are comprised of a paleoanthropological cast collection, human osteological collection, zooarchaeological collection, and a unique comparative stone tool use-wear collection developed by Professor George Odell. Students also have access to a Native American ethnological library and facilities in the Gilcrease Museum which the university manages.
