Microwear Edge 1The Lithic Microwear and Technology Laboratory is uniquely set-up to conduct comprehensive research on microwear methodological practices, experiments creating and using comparative collections, as well as research on archaeological assemblages.   The lab houses the Dr. Odell Lithic Use-Wear Comparative Collection, one of the largest of lithic microwear reference collections, and is equipped with several microscopes. 

The Department of Anthropology houses the Don Dickson Raw Material Comparative Collection which can be used to supplement the current use-wear collection with more diverse raw material types.
