The Archaeobotany Unit’s facilities include a 90 m2 laboratory containing the equipment and materials needed for the processing and mounting of palynological and phytolith samples.
The aim of the lab is to provide high-resolution data about the life history of animal populations from archaeological and palaeontological assemblages.
The laboratory occupies an area of 100 square meters designed to perform the different interventions on conservation.
This facility has been set up to prepare the thin sections of rocks and sediments required to conduct the Institute’s archaeological research.
The Unit applies information and communication technologies to archaeological research and manages clustered computing equipment for the management and analysis of data sets.
The IPHES is located opposite the URV Scientific and Technical Resources building. As a university institute, our researchers can take full advantage of the URV's analytical equipment.
The microvertebrates laboratory is in charge of the study of the small vertebrate remains recovered during the sieving-washing processes of the sediment coming from the archeological or archaeo-pale
These facilities are equipped to provide support for palaeoanthropological research.
