The Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science 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 and adjacent areas the tools and resources to answer a variety of scientfically-based questions mainly in the fields of bioarchaeology, geoarchaeology, paleobotany, and zooarchaeology (see vision, mission and philosophy).
