Welcome to the homepage for Cornell University’s Landscapes and Object Laboratory.

Located in McGraw Hall, the LOL is dedicated to the analysis and interpretation of archaeological materials. ¬†Our projects focus on exploring the role of the material world–from landscapes and places to assemblages and singular artifacts–in human social life.

This web site is intended to provide news of LOL events, synopses of current projects, access to public data sets, and resources for LOL team members. The LOL is open for student use at any time when other events are not scheduled in the space. Check the LOL calendar to see upcoming events. And write to Adam Smith or Lori Khatchadourian if you have a CIAMS-related event you want to host in the LOL.
