Abstract: Chemistry, Archaeology & Art is an introduction to archaeometry, the interface between archaeology, art history, and the natural and physical sciences. This interdisciplinary field requires close collaboration between various specialists who mainly use modern instrumental methods to analyze and study ancient materials, that then provide answers to archaeological questions and problems. Studies that fall within this realm include ancient nutrition and diet, early tool use, provenancing ceramics and stoneworks, geoarchaeology, metallurgy, radiometric dating, and art forgery. We intend to offer a broad survey of the scientific methods used in the analysis of archaeological materials, as well as provide a foundation for the chemistry concepts most pertinent for studying ancient materials.
