Our newly incorporated archaeobotanical laboratory is dedicated to macro- and micro botanical analysis.
Students and researchers have access to a wide range of microscopy equipment, as well as our extensive botanical and archaeobotanical reference collections.
High-resolution microscopy of plant remains is an important part of our work. Our state-of-the-art facilities include access to Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and the latest microscopic techniques.
Environmental Archaeology Unit reports
Our archaeobotany facility also includes access to all reports in the series Reports from the Environmental Archaeology Unit, York produced by the former Environmental Archaeology Unit (EAU), Department of Biology, University of York, between 1994 and 2002.
