The Department of Anthropology makes its home on the entire ground floor of McElhaney Hall.
Faculty offices are located in the G-1 suite, where we also have a
sizable library of resource materials relating to internships and
professional opportunities in Anthropology.
The ground floor also includes a specialized laboratory classroom, the
large general teaching and archaeological research lab in G-3.
Lab space and graduate student work areas are in McElhaney G-12.
We have two major classrooms—one designed for larger classes (McElhaney 104) and a 24-seat laboratory classroom suitable for biological anthropology and archaeology classes (G-2).
Work space includes a Wash and Flotation Room for processing archaeological artifacts coming in from the field and a very large Archaeology Analysis Laboratory with workstations and storage facilities.
A small Faunal Lab houses our comparative faunal collection and provides space for processing faunal specimens in a fume hood and closet for a dermestid beetle colony.
G-5 is now the Geophysical Lab and home to the Mobile Spatial Data Acquisition Program, funded by the National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program, which provided funds for instrumentation for:
