Open House: “Science in Support of Archaeology”

Discover what happens to archaeological samples once they are sent to an archeobotanic lab.

Here, analysts unlock secrets found in soils, rocks, residues, and charcoal. Learn what phytolith, pollen, macrofloral, starch, protein and organic residue (FTIR) analyses; botanical and charcoal identification; AMS radiocarbon dating; XRF; and paleoclimate modeling can tell you about plants that were growing, foods that were eaten, animals that were hunted, and when it was all taking place. Find out how to properly collect samples, and which analyses are the most appropriate for your samples and the questions you want answered.

Directions:
I-70 to Youngfield Exit, then south on Youngfield to West 27th Avenue

  • Meet & Talk With Analysts & Archaeologists.
  • Lab Tours, Hands–On Demonstrations & More!
  • Refreshments Provided.
