The department of Archaeology has custom designed laboratories, equipped to the highest standards, for research and teaching in environmental and bio-archaeology, and in archaeological materials. The department also has comparative collections that aid the the study of pollen, soils, molluscs, animal and human bones, seeds and other macro-plant remains.

Staff and students of the department have been utilising all of these areas of science-based investigation in research projects in Aegean archaeology. Many such projects are concerned with social and economic aspects of prehistoric and ancient Greece and link science-based investigations with methodology firmly based in archaeological theory. It is the inter-disciplinary mixing of theory, practice and analysis in a single centre that has given Sheffield its unique niche in Aegean archaeology.
