Biological lab


The lab has the facilities to support research in biological anthropology.

Our lab is equipped with standard osteometric equipment (calipers, osteometric boards) and augmented with a NextEngine 3D desktop scanner and software to support 3D imaging of osteological and archaeological material.

The department's collection of non-archaeological human skeletons provides students the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning in practices of human skeletal identification and interpretation. Our collection includes a full range of hominin fossil casts casts of fossils as well as representative modern primates.
