Encyklopedie moderních metod v archeologii
Title in English: Encyklopedia of Modern Methods in Archeology. Archaeometry.
Modern archaeological research involves collaboration of archaeologists and natural scientists. A virtual alphabet of scientific disciplines, ranging from aerology to zymurgy, today contribute to the elucidation of archaeological issues; some of these disciplines, however, among them chemistry and materials science, are more closely associated with archaeology than others. Although the foundations of modern chemistry as a science were laid only about two hundred years ago, and those of materials science even more recently, humans have always come into contact with chemicals and materials, experienced chemical activity, and developed chemical processes.
