The Wiener Laboratory of the ASCSA is an active research department dedicated to archaeological science in Greece. The lab provides both American and international scholars of archaeological science in the eastern Mediterranean the tools and resources to answer a variety of scientfically-based questions in the fields of bioarchaeology, geoarchaeology, paleobotany, and zooarchaeology (see vision, mission and philosophy).
The lab provides year-long fellowships as well as travel grants for independent research, and it offers research assistance to scholars who cannot physically travel to the laboratory. Educational outreach is offered via seminars, a regular lecture series, research publications and workshops.
