Fundamental research in scientific archaeology

— filed under:

The methods and the results obtained in geophysics, chemistry, physics and molecular biology are of growing importance in the interpretation of archaeological finds and features and are increasingly consulted in the clarification of the history of cultural and social processes and phenomena. Our own innovative refinement and adaptation of such scientific methods specifically for the archaeology of our research area, as well as the necessary fundamental research in the broadest sense, are important aspects of the academic activity of the ZBSA. This is carried out in close cooperation with the scientific institutes and disciplines of our partner university, the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel, as well as other international research institutions.


This Research Priority is assigned to the Strategic Research Area ► Man and Environment.
