Field Laboratory

MRF is unique in that it provides the opportunity to learn both field and preparation techniques. Our natually-lit field laboratory is only a short walk from the dormitories, and a few miles away from the excavation sites themselves. Interested participants can learn casting and molding techniques from molding technician Doug Hanks.
