Advances in micro-sampling techniques of human archaeological skeletal remains

Workshop announcement

25-26 février 2016
Aix-en-Provence : MMSH - LAMPEA

Goals
Micro-sampling of human archaeological bones and teeth for geochemical characterization is arguably one of the most exciting and promising developments in the field of bioarchaeology since the introduction of the first geochemical testing on human bone in the 1970s.
The goals of the workshop are the following :
1. To exchange experience on the techniques of laboratory processing ;
2. To share information on recent work ; and
3. To assess the potential range of future archaeological applications ;

Sponsors : A*Midex (Initiative d’excellence Aix-Marseille) and Baikal–Hokkaido Archaeology Project.
