(Universitat Pompeu Fabra – Barcelona) An international archaeological study, led by researchers from the Culture and Socio-Ecological Dynamics (CaSEs) research group, has advanced in the understanding and preservation of archaeological sites and in improving their analysis, thanks to the application of pXRF (portable X-ray fluorescence analysis) to anthropogenic sediments in Africa. It is a rapid, inexpensive, non-invasive procedure, which enables generating an additional archaeological record from the anthropogenic deposit by analysing chemical elements, combined with geostatistics.
