JAAS 30 weeks to 30- Week 5!

 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.

JAAS 30 weeks to 30- Week 3!

 Speciation of chromium in cow's milk by solid-phase extraction/dynamic reaction cell inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (DRC-ICP-MS)

This week is leather! We had to be a little creative with our choice this week. While we couldn’t find a paper that looked specifically at leather, we did find one investigating another product we get from cows, in this case milk.

Next year sees the 30th Anniversary for JAAS, and to celebrate we are marking out the 30 weeks leading up to this fantastic milestone! Each week we will be highlighting a JAAS paper that corresponds (albeit sometimes very loosely) with the traditional wedding anniversary presents.

To kick start us off, week 1 is Paper.
