Prof. Sariel Shalev is the head of Analytical Laboratory for Archaeological Materials. The lab studies the ancient artifacts and remains which come from excavations in Israel in order to obtain a better understanding of the evolution of technology, industries, crafts, economies, society and culture and to study the archaeological materials contributing to the interface between science and humanities. This is accomplished by addressing archaeological, historical, ethnographical, and art historical questions, and to further explore them with the best available scientific tools such as portable X-ray florescence analyzer (ED-XRF) and radiography machine and other methods. Owing to its portability, ease of operation in computerized modes, this equipment is easily usable in the field, in museums, in study collections, and storerooms, etc. The lab became recently the leading interdisciplinary research center of its kind in the field of archaeological materials and archaeometallurgy.
