Inauguration of the new Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science
On June 4, 2016, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens will celebrate the opening of the Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science, a state-of-the-art facility that will be the preeminent center for high level archaeological science for the Mediterranean and Southeastern Europe.
The opening is a historic day in the 135-year history of the American School and was made possible by the visionary philanthropy of Malcolm H. Wiener, Chairman of the American School’s Board of Trustees, whose uncommon vision has supported the most forward-looking aspects of the School’s research mission.
Under the Directorship of Dr. Panagiotis Karkanas (above right), the Wiener Laboratory not only provides exceptional facilities and equipment but also extensive comparative collections, and resources for independent scientific research. The lab is poised to become a worldwide leader in the field of archaeological science and the best place for studying archaeological materials related to the ancient Greek world in its broadest sense. The Wiener Laboratory is already involved in long-range, multidimensional programs of research focused primarily on human osteology, faunal analysis, and a range of geoarchaeological and palaeoenvironmental research.
