Archaeobotany Laboratory

The Archaeobotany Laboratory, located in 265 Condon Hall, is designed to promote archaeobotanical research that explores the human-environmental interactions and cultural use and modification of plants in the past. Research in the lab includes the early use of plant resources, agricultural origins, domestication of major Asian crops, anthropogenic impact on vegetation, and agro-ecology. The lab is designed to promote training and research in archaeobotany for both undergraduate and graduate students and accommodate sessions for ANTH 446/546 Practical Archaeobotany. The lab is equipped with various microscopes, imaging and computer station to analyze and document both macroscopic and microscopic plant remains. For more information on the laboratory or a volunteering opportunity, visit the Archaeobotany Laboratory Homepage or contact Dr. Gyoung-Ah Lee.
