XRF in Archaeology: Overview of Fundamental Concepts and Case-studies
October 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Instructor: Lucas R. M. Johnson
This seminar enhances archaeologists’ ability to meet the RPA code of conduct by explaining a nondestructive analytical technique used to conserve cultural materials and/or answer anthropological questions while aiming to show students and other interested parties the use and limitations of XRF in archaeology. A primary goal of this seminar will highlight the need to disclose methods or, in other words, show new analysts on how to create transparency in performing research. Transparency enables analysts can recreate and compare results within a controlled setting, thus supporting a knowledgeable and ethical scientific community.
