About This Project

This innovative, collaborative project addresses whether infrared spectroscopy can be used to characterize organic residues on fire-cracked rocks (FCR), enabling archaeologists to accurately identify what was cooked in earth ovens. To do so, I will create a reference collection and test both modern experimentally produced residues and residues from archaeological FCR. Some initial work has already been published - there's a link below.
Blast off!
