Zooarchaeology Lab

Zooarchaeology Lab

The Zooarchaeology Laboratory is supervised by Derek Anderson and is located in the basement of the Cobb Institute. It contains a comparative collection of faunal material from throughout the Southeastern United States, including the skeletal remains of about 350 individual mammals, birds, fish, and reptiles. The collection is regularly used for the identification and analysis of archaeological animal bone, and as a teaching aid for classes in anthropology and forensics.
