I’d like to welcome everyone to the Archaeometry Blog!

I hope that this site will become a useful resource for everyone with an interest in applying scientific techniques to archaeology. I intend to discuss current research, profile researchers, research groups, companies or other blogs and most of all facilitate the sharing of useful information that might not otherwise be widely disseminated.

I’d also like to acknowledge the inspiration of Dr Alice Gorman and Mick Morrison who’s blogging (“Space Age Archaeology” and “Mick Morrison’s Archaeology Blog” respectively) has prompted me to venture down the blog path myself.

  • Welcome to the world of blogging, I. Moffat. I look forward to reading your observations on archaeological science.

  • Yes welcome fellow traveller! I look forward to your thoughts on those wonderful things that go ‘ping’ in archaeology as well as thoughts and comments on palaeoenvironmental and archaeological research. You should write a profile on the good Dr Aubert!
