Working at archaeological sites

Studies of sedimentology and stratigraphy, sample collection, etc.

Working in the laboratory

The characterisation and identification of pottery and stone materials and classical-period mortars; the dating of pottery by preparing samples; undertaking analyses and obtaining thermoluminescence analytical data; the preparation and interpretation of the data in reports, studies or projects:

  • Optical microscopy (thin section)
  • Macroscopic observation (binocular loupe)
  • Elementary chemical analysis
  • Electronic microscopy
  • X-ray diffraction
  • Cathodoluminescence
  • Isotope analysis
  • Thermoluminescence (for pottery dating)
  • Refraction index determination (refractometry)
  • Absorption spectrum determination (spectroscopy)
  • Macroscopic observation (stereo-microscopy)
