CAIRN Utilizes portable x-ray fluorescence spectrometer (pXRF) in Spain

Field Update: Dr. Chris Begley (Transylvania University), Peter Campbell (CAIRN), Larry Hassebrook (University of Kentucky),  and Eli Crane (University of Kentucky) are currently investigating archaeological sites in Spain using the portable x-ray fluorescence spectrometer (pXRF) that was provided by Olympus Innov-X to test the elemental composition of some material in the large mortuary cave in Menorca, Spain.

This research was made possibly through a grant from The Missouri Humanities Council with support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.  Additional thanks to Olympus for loan of the portable x-ray fluorescence spectrometer (pXRF).
