"Archaeometric Methods, Archaeological Materials and Ancient
Society for American Archaeology
Annual Meeting
Honolulu Hawai'i
April 3-7, 2013

Archaeometric techniques are increasingly applied in the field and
in the laboratory for the characterization of archaeological and
historic materials.  This session will focus on geochemical and
material analysis techniques (including but not limited to
UV-VIS-NIR, XRF, XRD, ICP-MS, GC-MS, SEM-EDS) that are used in
archaeometric studies to provide information on chemical
composition, microstructure and isotopic signatures that are used
for sourcing, provenance, environments, migration, craft
specialization, trade and conservation/preservation. The papers in
this session will address the methods of acquiring the data and how
the data is treated in light of the complexities posed by the
heterogeneous nature of archaeological materials and the alterations
that they undergo during burial. This session aims to bring forward
a discussion of the advantages and limitations of different
techniques based both on hardware design and application methodology
and the pitfalls in the acquisition and interpretation of results.
Papers that focus on the analysis of materials from an excavated
context are preferred, but those discussing the analysis of
artifacts from museum collections are also welcome.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract or have further
questions, please contact Vanessa Muros <vmuros<-at->ucla<.>edu
<vmuros<-at->ucla<.>edu> or Dr. Ioanna Kakoulli <kakoulli<-at->ucla<.>edu>) by
September 7, 2012.
