Interdisciplinary analysis

Today, different kind of scientific studies form an integral part of modern archaeology, since in certain cases, more historical data can be obtained than from the observations recorded on-site. Laboratory analyses provide valuable information about the life of people in the past.

During our scientific and research activities, we maintain a continuous work relationship with several professionals all over Europe. The professional community generated this way guarantees that the information obtained during the archaeological excavation is evaluated from various aspects of state-of-the-art technology.

Using our international network of cooperation and relationships, we manage scientific services for our partners with as favourable conditions as possible. 

Metallography (XRF)

A method for analysing the composition of metal objects by X-ray, without the need for auxiliary gases or vacuum.

Analysis of stone tools

When analysing stone tools, the technology of workmanship, the method of use and the stone raw material is examined.

Environment reconstruction

Environmental reconstruction is aimed at reconstructing the palaeo-environment of archaeological periods by analysing soil samples and vegetal remains.

Archaeobotany

Our collection of seeds and fruits represent all significant species of plants in Europe.

Archaeozoology

It is the identification and analysis of animal remains and its interpretation from various aspects.

Ceramic petrography

During petrographic analysis a ceramic thin section is analysed by a polarising microscope. The analysis of ceramic raw materials provides complex information on ceramic traditions.

Archaeological anthropology tests

The purpose of archaeological anthropology tests is to highlight the anthropologic appearance of former communities and to describe signs of life in the past.

Dendrochronology

A method for determining age by examining the growth rings of trees, which generates absolute dating for a long-term with the accuracy of one year.

Physical anthropology

Anthropological analysis provides information on the life style and consumption habits of prehistoric communities.

C14

Radiometric method for establishing the age of organic material.

Archaeogenetics

It is a study of ancient DNA, providing information on relatedness and migrations of people and plant and animal evolution.
