We have a number of laboratory spaces that are used for both research and teaching. We encourage undergraduates to contact professors with whom they share interests to seek out research opportunities. In regard to dedicated classroom teaching laboratory space, the Archaeology Teaching Laboratory is located in 204 Condon Hall. The facility is used for undergraduate and graduate archaeology courses, and allows the inclusion of hands-on laboratory exercises involving ceramics, lithics, botanical specimens, and faunal remains. The Archaeology Teaching Laboratory is also used for lectures by visiting speakers.
The Biological Anthropology Teaching Laboratory is located in 368 Condon Hall, and is a dedicated laboratory for the teaching of courses in biological anthropology that have practical ‘hands-on’ learning exercises in human and non-human primate anatomy, dental anthropology, paleontology, and human biology. The teaching lab provides access to teaching collections for biological anthropology discussion sections and advanced laboratory classes. The teaching collection includes human anatomy and osteology teaching specimens, casts of fossil hominids and hominoids, and casts of various non-human primates and other vertebrates.
