The Archaeological Research Lab is a production structure located in Desert, next to the Composite Factory. It was originally introduced on October 27, 2016 as part of the timed quest called Pharaoh's Curse.[1] The contracts and construction of this building provides 19px-CapitalPoints.png for 19px-CapitalPoints.png Halloween Contest.

A total of 145 assets are needed to complete construction of the Archaeological Research Lab. This is equivalent to 145 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
