The Wiener Laboratory is an active research department, within the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, dedicated to archaeological science in Greece. The laboratory was created through the vision of Malcolm H. Wiener and it remains sustained by his generosity. The Lab has grown since its inauguration on June 2, 1992, to offer a variety of fellowship opportunities, a library, and comparative reference collections, as well as a range of the specialist equipment and tools required by scholars exploring the past through scientific means. Research conducted at the Wiener Laboratory includes biological anthropology (the study of human skeletal remains), zooarchaeology (the study of animal bones), geoarchaeology (the study of soils and rocks, including metallurgy), and environmental studies (including the study of organic residues and botanical remains). Annual fellowships are offered in each of these areas.
The establishment of the Division of Anthropology at the Yale Peabody Museum in 1902 by George Grant MacCurdy brought together the Museum’s archaeological, ethnological and physical anthropology collections under a single authority. Since then, through the University’s scientific expeditions and donations from Yale alumni and friends, the holdings of the Division have grown to over 280,000 catalogued lots.
The Yale University Art Gallery stimulates active learning about art and the creative process through research, teaching, and dialogue among communities of Yale students, faculty, artists, scholars, alumni, and the wider public. The Gallery organizes exhibitions and educational programs to offer enjoyment and encourage inquiry, while building and maintaining its collections in trust for future generations. It holds a substantial collection of ancient objects, including material from Yale's excavations at Dura Europos.
Yeronisos, or "Sacred Island", is 12,000 square meters of calcareous rock rising dramatically from the swelling seas just off the coast of western Cyprus. Since 1990 it has been the extraordinary setting for a total island study undertaken by Professor Joan Breton Connelly and the Yeronisos Island Expedition for New York University. The project pioneers the integration of ecological and archaeological fieldwork toward the common goal of preserving natural and cultural resources.
The DAI compiles some of the most important bibliographies on archaeology: Archaeological Bibliography, Bibliography of the Archaeology of the Iberian Peninsula, Subject catalogue of the Roman-German Commission, and Bibliography of the Archaeology of Eurasia (completed bibliography). You are able to search through the Archaeological Bibliography free of charge at the website of the DAI. The Archaeological Bibliography is expanded daily by the departments in Rome, Athens, Istanbul and the head office in Berlin, and it comprises titles collected since 1956 (approx. 400,000 titles). As a result of the involvement of the Athens and Istanbul departments in compiling the bibliography (since spring 2006), considerably more Greek and Turkish journals and monographs have been described and made available for research, in view of the holdings of those libraries.
The Neubauer Expedition to Zincirli is an archaeological project of the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute. 
Each summer, a research team of twenty-five to thirty archaeologists have worked at Ziyaret Tepe conducting excavations, geophysical surveys, artifact conservation, and specialist studies. Extensive preliminary reports of our work have been published regularly and many specialist studies are also available for scholars studying the ancient Near East in general, and the Assyrians in particular.
