Using organic chemistry to study ancient organic traces from archaeological context.
Where can I find such residues?
- Organic residues on objects (e.g. stone, bone or antler tools; ceramic objects; vessels)
- Organic compounds in soils (e.g. special activity areas such as cesspits, pitch/tar production sites)
