The large format scanner can handle mounted materials up to 1/4” thickness.

CAMEL welcomes the involvement of faculty, student, staff, volunteers, and visitors in its current research and database-building projects. We also welcome the opportunity to advise student and scholars on their own research projects and to collaborate with interested individuals or groups on laboratory-based landscape archaeology work.
