Lithics Lab Department of Anthropology




The WSU Department of Anthropology lithics lab provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students interested in the analysis of lithic materials and their importance for understanding past lifeways. Opportunities in the lab include experimental projects, use-wear, sourcing, and other analytical methods to explore the life-history and technological organization of lithic materials.

For questions or more information about the lab and our research, view the research page in the menu, or contact laboratory director Dr. Rachel A. Horowitz (Dr. Horowitz’s faculty page).


The Washington State University Pullman campus is located on the homelands of the Nimíipuu (Nez Perce) Tribe and the Palus people. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water, and to their ancestors.
