Our research in the Archaeological Science Laboratory develops novel multidisciplinary approaches to analyse cultural materials, artifacts and landscapes. These integrated methods offer an extraordinary view into past cultures, understanding of current society, and insight into our future. Our group explores provenience, sourcing and exchange of source geological materials and artifacts through analysis and statistical approaches; and the development of high-resolution, non-invasive characterisation of cultural heritage materials.
Professor Rachel Popelka-Filcoff leads the Archaeological Science Cluster. The Archaeological Science Laboratory is one laboratory within the Archaeological Science Cluster in the School of Geography, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.
