We strive to make accessible the latest developments in archaeological science, working with you to write the Archaeology of the 21st century.

In partnership with many of the best specialists across Europe and the World, Amélie provides to the Archaeological, Heritage Management and Environmental Community a vast range of environmental and archaeometric analysis. We can help you design your project to meet your needs and budget, and stay your unique point of contact throughout the duration of your project.

  • Archaeobotany:

    • plant macro-remains

    • wood and charred wood remains

    • pollen

    • terrestrial and marine molluscs

    • insects

    • phytoliths

    • parasites

    • diatoms

    • ostracods and forams

    • micro-fauna

    • faecal spherulites

  • Archaeometry:

    • Chemical composition of artefacts (XRD, XRF, ICP-MS, Raman, Infra-red, etc)

    • Chemical composition of sediments (XRD, XRF, ICP-MS)

    • Organic residues on ceramics, porous stones and wood (lipid and protein analysis, carbon and nitrogen isotopes)

    • Isotope analysis on bones (strontium, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen)

    • Coprolite analysis (parasites, insects, XRF, XRD, SEM-EDS, isotopes, biliar acids)

  • Sediment analysis:

    • Micromorphology

    • Sedimentology

    • Chemical composition of sediments (XRD, XRF, ICP-MS)

    • Geochemical mapping of floors, surfaces and landscapes (pXRF)

    • Geophysic survey with our partner PZP (radar, electromagnetic, etc)

    • Deep coring (up to 15m) on archaeological sites (ex: within wells) or as part of a palaeoenvironmental programme.
