Earth Search offers a range of analytical specializations and has the capability to conserve artifacts from marine and terrestrial sites.  Our 3000 sq. ft. archaeology lab has the capacity to process and store artifacts from multiple large-scale archaeology projects simultaneously.  The lab space is protected by a computer-integrated security and fire-detection systems.


Our staff is experienced with analyzing both historic and prehistoric artifacts.  We have on-staff specialists in ceramic analysis, lithic analysis, human osteology and zooarchaeology.


Earth Search's wet lab houses silt-trap connected washing sinks and purpose-built drying stations.  Earth Search is also equipped with a custom designed flotation tank for separating heavy and light fractions of materials from soil samples.
