ChemArch: The organic chemistry and molecular biology of archaeological artefacts

Project description

Archaeology meets analytical chemistry and biology

Archaeology is typically associated with excavation, studies of structures and dating of finds. However, numerous fields have developed advanced techniques and novel chemical and biological tools that are opening the door to detailed information invaluable to our understanding of ancient peoples and cultures. Multidisciplinary training is required to exploit the tremendous potential. The EU-funded ChemArch project is developing a global network of labs, manufacturers and suppliers of analytical equipment, museums and archaeologists to support a doctoral program that bridges the gap between analytical scientific approaches and archaeology. The team will also develop best practices and tools for this exciting new field that will help us all better understand and preserve Europe's unique prehistoric artefact record.
