Archaeometry is an international journal covering the involvement of the physical and biological sciences with archaeology and art history. The topics covered include dating methods, artifact studies, mathematical methods, remote sensing techniques, conservation science and the study of man and his environment. The journal began in 1958 as the Bulletin of the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art, Oxford University who published it for some 40 years. As from 2001, the journal has been published on behalf of the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art, Oxford University, in association with the Gesellschaft für Naturwissenschaftliche Archäologie Archäometrie and Society for Archaeological Sciences by Wiley-Blackwell.
Professor Sir Barry Cunliffe will give the 2016 Archaeometry lecture
‘Approaching Eurasia: the dynamics of connectivity’
Wednesday 8th June at 5pm
In the Dyson Perrins Lecture Theatre,
Dyson Perrins Building, South Parks Road,
Oxford, OX1 3QY
One of the characteristics of Eurasian archaeology is mobility -- the movement of people, commodities and ideas across huge distances. The talk will explore the dynamics behind this phenomenon -- the part played by geography and climate change and, in particular, the compulsion which humans share for the acquisition of rare materials and esoteric knowledge.
