An elaborated plan is prospective and flexible.
We accompany you and your staff from the first sample-taking and the development of promising questions.
Contact us by e-mail or telephone call. We would be pleased to meet you for a first free consulting.
Archaeometrical analysis of objects
Solid objects carry information.
We may consult you choosing the appropriate scientific method for your material or topics in question. We perform measurements and data analyses or support you with the examination of your archaeometrical data.
Methods we offer:
X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)
X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM)
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
Archaeological analysis of objects
With every technique and gesture a craftsperson leaves traces in an object.
Examining these traces we may differentiate spaces of artisanal communication, recognise how experienced a craftsperson is and how the raw material affects the process.
Most traces of the crafting process are visible macroscopically. If required we use archaeometrical and experimental methods to meet the requirements of your research questions.
If necessary we combine our analyses with targeted experiments.
Would you like to perform an archaeological experiment and accompany it with scientific analyses?
Do not hesitate to contact us.
