Supporting the Wiener Laboratory
The Wiener Laboratory is the realization of Malcolm H. Wiener’s vision for an archaeological science research laboratory at the School. This growing and active laboratory is at the forefront of archaeological science and has left its mark on archaeology in Greece. In 1992, with generous funding from the Malcolm H. Wiener Foundation, the laboratory was accommodated in the School’s Main Building. The lab has now outgrown its modest space, and plans for a new and expanded lab facility on the grounds of the School are taking shape. Current plans place the newly constructed Laboratory in the garden behind the Main Building.
A generous $2 million challenge gift for the construction of this new facility has recently been given to the School by the Malcolm H. Wiener Foundation, and matching gifts of over $500,000 have already been pledged toward a $4 million goal for the building. The American School is undertaking a campaign to complete the funding for the new Wiener Lab and to secure additional endowment and project funding to sustain an archaeological research laboratory of the highest caliber.
