Abstract:
There are three main classes of research questions which archaeologists would like specialists in organic materials to address: artefacts made from organic materials (ie environmental, social, economic implications as well as 'traditional' studies); palaeoenvironmental indicators (still difficult to use incisively); and decay products of organic materials (eg gas chromatography of adipocere, beer residues, isotopic ratios for diet, etc). A five-point scheme to help determine what, if any, analyses are called for includes asking for prior publication in reputable scientific journals (to demonstrate validity), normal scientific experimentation standards, adequate sampling and checking for post-depositional contaminants, some understanding of taphonomy, and sticking to the point among the high-technology science!
