Lecture by Dr Lisa Brown MA(Hons) MSc FSA Scot MCIfA, Historic Environment Scotland
The application of science as a tool for analyzing and interpreting archaeological remains is becoming much more commonplace. From the first measurements of the radiocarbon dates almost 70 years ago, providing an increasingly robust understanding of the chronology of the past, through to ancient DNA and isotopes, giving an insight into people’s diet and where they come from. This lecture will explore some of the challenges and opportunities of working with science in archaeology, before looking towards where we might see advances in the future.
