This project organized by Professor Carlsmith is a study of techniques used to look into the Earth with possible application to an archaeological expedition to Troy. In particular, a feasibility study of using cosmic ray muon attenuation and scattering to image subsurface structures is being performed with GEANT simulations with the goal of evaluating time and resolution and size tradeoffs with realistic models based on the Troy citadel.
Other techniques being reviewed for possible application are):
Magnetometry - passive and active detection based on magnetic susceptibility.
Radiometry - use of ground penetrating radar.
Graviometry - Surface surveys of gravitational field variations and reconstruction.

Please find below the complete Molecular Archaeology Group Meeting Schedule for Spring 2013. Every other Tuesday in The Biotechnology Center, Room 1360, 9-10 am. Bagels and coffee provided. As you see fit, please circulate this to colleagues, post-docs, and graduate students with an interest in molecular archaeology. These meetings are informal discussions -- no longer than one hour -- featuring a topic introduced (in 10 minutes) by a specialist who may circulate material in advance for discussion (not required). The majority of the hour will be focused on discussion and exchange.
3/5: Dr. William Aylward (Department of Classics) on Troy and archaeological science
3/19: Dr. David Meiggs (Department of Anthropology) on isotopes and aDNA
4/2: Dr. Greg Barrett-Wilt (Director, Mass Spectrometry/Proteomics Facility) on archaeo-proteomics
4/16: Dr. Jim Burton ()Director, T. Douglas Price Laboratory for Archaeological Chemistry on isotopes and geographic origins of humans
4/30: Dr. Caitlin Pepperell (Assistant Professor of Medical Microbiology & Immunology and Medicine) on origin of M. tuberculosis
5/14: Dr. Erika Marín-Spiotta (Assistant Professor of Geography) on measurements of human legacies on soil organic matter and soil properties
