Advances in microanalyses of archaeological materials




Prof. Rainer Grün

The strength of the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University has always been the development of state-of-the-art micro-analytical facilities and utilising their unique capabilities to advance earth science research. In recent years, we have established laboratories for laser ablation analysis, a sensitive high resolution micro probe dedicated to light stable isotopes and a single stage accelerator for radiocarbon dating.

This presentation will showcase some recent examples of how these facilities can be used in archaeological and palaeoanthropological applications.
