The theme for the 2015 Illinois Archaeology Awareness Month is 'The Future of the Past: Science in Archaeology'. As part of our efforts to inform people about different techniques used by archaeologists (geophysics, PIMA, XRF, isotopes, aDNA, LiDAR, etc) we would like to include brief descriptions of the techniques on the IAAM website and then provide links to webpages that describe the application of the techniques in archaeology. We are asking for contributions to the webpage by anyone who has or is currently using these techniques as part of your research project. This could be a great way to highlight advances in Illinois archaeology in recent years through providing examples of your research efforts.
If you would like to contribute, please contact Karen Atwell, Eve Hargrave, or Joe Wheeler. We would need several introductory sentences describing your research and then the actual link for more information.
