I’m back from leave and the project has progressed well

It’s been quite a while since I last put out a post on this blog and the main reason for that is that I haven’t been at work most of the time. The last five months have been spent as a full time dad, first twelve weeks paternity leave and quickly followed up by my summer holidays. Anyway, I’m back at work and things have been progressing while I’ve been away.¬†Most of my isotope samples have been analysed. I have received the results for the analysis of all the water samples and all the enamel samples and, according¬†to my latest information, the results for the bone samples will be ready within a couple of weeks. The analyses in¬†the DNA lab is also progressing well and results from this work is also expected within the very¬†near future. Although, the timing of¬†my leave was purely coincidental,¬†it couldn’t have happened at a better time¬†as the project has been progressing so well without me with all the lab work¬†being done.

So, what’s next?

Until I get the final isotope results I have a fair bit I have to read up on to be as prepared as I can manage¬†for the¬†interpretation of the results. To be able to make the best possible interpretation of the isotope data it is important that I have the best possible understanding of the limitations of the methodology and also that I have the best possible understanding of the historical and archaeological context¬†for the skeletons from which the samples were taken. This is, of course, not something I’ve just started reading about, but, as you probably know, the amount of information is endless and there is always new¬†books and articles to read and new angles to explore.

In about¬†four weeks I will be going to the Netherlands where I will stay until the end of November. I’ll be¬†visiting Leiden University as a visiting researcher. I am looking forward to spending some time in the Netherlands and¬†I believe being part of the¬†Faculty of¬†Archaeology at¬†the University of Leiden, with its extensive and varied expertise,¬†will do the project a lot of good.

I will be back with more, possibly exciting, information during the autumn when the results are being interpreted.
