A center for innovation in environmental, geological, and archaeological sciences
PaleoResearch Institute specializes in paleoenvironmental, archaeobotanic, and radiocarbon dating services. This includes radiocarbon dating, palynology, geology, and archaeometry. We don't just send a spreadsheet of results, but provide interpretation for your results. For a complete list and descriptions of all our available services, please visit our services index
By carefully measuring the decay of 14C relative to stable carbon isotopes, we can infer the age of an organic sample
Analysis of pollen isn't just a science, it's an art. Our experienced palynologists can reconstruct the vegetation history of your site
Subtle clues in isotopes, pollen, and sediment mortphology allows us to reconstruct the climate of the past
Using macrobotanicals, wood/charcoal identification, and fiber or cell identification we address artifact construction, address forensic questions, or discuss food or medicine preparation
We employ non-destructive custom-calibrated X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis of single samples and geologic cores
Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (using mid-range wavelengths) of organic molecules helps address contents of cooking vessels and identify the presence of organic compounds
Protein analysis identifies preserved proteins retained on artifacts suggesting their use
With all of our services, we provide the context needed to interpret the results with client-based reports and background information
You can send your samples. Or we can send a person.
The reality of advanced analysis is that it isn't enough to get a spreadsheet - you need time and attention. We can send our experts on site for XRF analysis in-situe of sites and fields. We're a phone call away.
