We have fully equipped media studios complete with the latest recording and editing equipment for use by our academics, staff and students for marketing, communication and presentation purposes. 

ANH Labs

Archaeology and Natural History Labs

Our Archaeology and Natural History laboratories facilitate the exploration of environmental and archaeological questions. The facilities were extensively refurbished in 2010 in recognition of the high-quality research carried out here. The eight research laboratories and one teaching laboratory are outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, making them among the best of their kind on campus.
