The Laboratory for Bioarchaeology was established in 2008, as a teaching and research unit of the Department of Archaeology, Faculty of Philosophy – University of Belgrade. Bioarchaeology includes research and analysis of organic material from archaeological sites, namely through scientific disciplines of physical anthropology, archaeozoology and archaeobotany. The Laboratory was founded in order to improve the teaching process in the field of bioarchaeology, by means of interaction of lectures and research. The Laboratory provides macroscopic and microscopic analyses of human and animal remains, and collaborates with various institutions equipped for DNA, stable isotope and lipid analysis. The Laboratory houses two collections, the Palaeoanthropological and the Archaeozoological reference collection.

The Laboratory staff have performed anthropological and archaeozoological analyses for a great number of local and foreign scientific institutions (Archaeological Institute in Belgrade, Republic Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments in Belgrade, Provincial Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments, National Museum in Belgrade, Museum of Vojvodina, Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments in Niš, National Museum in Kruševac, National Museum in Kikinda, National Museum in Čačak, National Museum in Zrenjanin, Museum of Republic of Srpska in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina), The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Regional Institute for Heritage Preservation of Kotor (Montenegro), Museum of Herceg-Novi (Montenegro), etc).

The Laboratory researchers are enthusiastic about creating and taking part in projects related to the wider community, as they believe that science can greatly contribute to the development of society. They have initiated the project The Kikinda mammoth, as well as various minor projects in which archaeology is utilised as a tool for developing scientific literacy among students.
