The Wilder 3-Dimensional Imaging Lab is a research laboratory within the Center for Maritime Archaeology and Conservation (CMAC), Department of Anthropology, College of Liberal Arts at Texas A&M University (TAMU). Research at the Wilder Lab facilities is directed at developing 3-Dimensional diagnostic tools to assist in the preservation of artifacts from terrestrial and maritime archaeological sites.
Courses taught through the Wilder Lab include classes on archaeological, conservation, and artifact photography, as well as three dimensional computer modeling.
Research at the Wilder Lab is interdisciplinary, working with many labs and departments within the University System. While the focus of the lab is research and instruction, we also conduct contracted research with museums and other institutions.
Funding for the Wilder Lab has been provided by generous donations from Donna and Bill Wilder and the Nautical Archaeology Program, at Texas A&M University.
