The Ethnology Museum Laboratory (EML)

The Ethnology Museum Laboratory (EML) is a resource of the anthropology department that includes an ethnographic collection of over 1,200 artifacts, a lab space with Mac and PC computers and audio/visual equipment, as well as facilities for project team meetings, artifact analysis, photography, storage and exhibit staging. The department has several exhibit cases in the 0400 wing of Peck Hall. These include the "International Case" (60' long by 4' deep) where faculty sponsored ethnographic exhibits are mounted and two free standing cases that display the results of archaeological field schools, as well as five free standing cases and one "open storage" display case where individual students may mount exhibits they design for museum internships or senior projects. The EML staff and students also work closely with the University Museum , which has a collection of over 10,000 artifacts, mainly ethnographic and archaeological, ranging from prehistoric South American pottery to Qing dynasty jade sculptures.
