Welcome to the Environmental
Archaeology Lab at Wesleyan University!

Research and teaching in the lab focus on understanding past human-environmental interactions through the analysis of animal and plant remains. We provide opportunities for hands-on student learning in zooarchaeology, archaeological science, experimental archaeology, and collections management. The Environmental Archaeology Lab currently houses a variety of archaeological teaching collections including vertebrate animal skeletal comparative collections, stone tool replicas, and paleoanthropology replicas from Wesleyan’s Archaeology & Anthropology Collections. We are also developing digitization and 3D scanning projects to increase accessibility of Wesleyan’s collections. If you are interested in working in the lab or viewing the collections, please contact Katherine Brunson (
