When archaeology meets chemistry

Who are we?

Archemy is the first archeochemistry lab in the Baltics that combines archaeology with analytical chemistry and aims to bridge humanities and natural sciences. Our group works in archaeological sciences, especially biomolecular archaeology, with major focus on ancient dietary and health reconstructions, migrations and provenance studies. Archemy has wide expertise in material culture studies, human osteology, zooarchaeology and archaeobotany. We have a direct association with the Institute of Chemistry which among others has a long-term track record for working with the chemical analysis of cultural heritage objects.
