Group members:  Dr. Francisco Mena, Dr. César Méndez, Dr. Amalia Nuevo. 

The Prehistory and Anthropology Laboratory not only custodies and contributes to increase and document archaeological collections obtained in the region, but also permits zoo-archaeological and lithic analyses.  It also prepares samples for sending to isotope and radiocarbon studies.  It accepts thesis investigators and external researchers with intentions of eventually developing microscopic studies (i.e., usage footprints) and those oriented towards other disciplines dealing with the past, such as paleontology and paleo-environmental research.
