There’s a double hit of interesting metal artifact research news this week.
So researchers might then
With so many caveats, I might be tempted to give up on the project. Undaunted, Desaulty’s team first figured out how to use a recently improved technology to distinguish silver isotopes (which is incidentally called Multi-Collector Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry, oh yes!). And then they combined these silver results with their copper and lead isotope measurements.
So while Desaulty figured out the geographical provenance of a metal, this week’s second metal-related discovery is on metal dating.
