Scanning and Printing
The laboratory also offers the use of several flatbed scanners (slide and transparency capable, letter-size and A3-size beds) and a large-format (42”) Contex scanner and plotter for scanning and printing topographic maps and oversized materials. The large format scanner can handle mounted materials up to 1/4” thickness.
Institute for the Study of Ancient Cultures staff and students can access the lab for scanning, printing, or research needs by visiting during office hours or by making an appointment with a member of the staff.
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.
