Joint Meeting of the Royal Society of Chemistry & Society of Antiquaries — Advances in Isotope Ratio and related analyses for mapping migrations from Prehistory to the Viking Age
13 Jun 2022 • London, United Kingdom
The Royal Society of Chemistry
Recent advances in analytical methods - in particular quadrupole and multi-collector mass spectroscopic analysis - have increased the potential of stable isotope ratio analysis for studying biological (using principally isotopes of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and strontium) and non-biological (glass/ metal) materials, using principally isotopes of strontium and lead. This will hopefully catalyse the establishment of an international isotope ratio geo-database of high resolution data (similar to the highly successful protein data bank in molecular biology & the ever growing human genomics data base) which when sufficiently populated will ultimately allow the resolution of important questions regarding diet, historical movements, trade routes - and the provenance or origins of people and objects.
The meeting is in honour of J.D. Bu'Lock (1928–1996), founding Chairman of the RSC Biotechnology Group and distinguished Viking Age antiquarian.
