Prep Room and Furnaces
This space is a dedicated dirty prep room. It contains two furnaces that are used for various burning/charring/preservation experiments. The room also contains a fume-hood and provides a space for some of the more unpleasant aspects of archaeological work, for example, the preparation of fish/mammal skeletons for analysis or reference material.
Bioarchaeology Project Room
This project room is a project space exclusively for students working on material related to their own research. The room contains a series of microscopes as well as bench and storage space for student samples. The room also houses the zooarchaeological reference collections and a space for students to lay out and utilise these materials.
Botanical Gardens Experimental Archaeology Space
We are exceptionally lucky to have very close working links with Durham's award-winning Botanical Gardens. The gardens provide a space for our students to carry out experimental archaeology, including hearth burning and charring experiments.
