 Strontium isotopic and tree-ring signatures of Cedrus brevifolia in Cyprus

Van Lerberghe et al

This week is wood! This paper featured in a 2012 themed issue on Archaeometry. In it, Van Lerberghe
et al used strontium isotopes in an attempt to provenance archaeological cedar wood from the east Mediterranean region. One of the roles cedar had in ancient Egypt and the Near East was in shipbuilding. The provenance of recovered wood is only surmised in studies to date.
