The Archaeometry Laboratory at the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR) supports research in anthropology, archaeology, art history, and geological sciences by employing various physical and chemical techniques to examine artifacts. Often this is applied to “sourcing” studies to match an artifact with the original site, quarry, or other artifacts by comparing chemical fingerprints. Such data can help answer questions related to trade and human migration. Other applications include studies on prehistoric technology, artifact use, and artifact authenticity.
