Isotopes in waiting

Chagyr_isotopes02

Ancient bone fragments in hydrochloric acid. Waiting for everything mineral to dissolve, leaving the organic parts for analysis. To be checked every day.

In the isotope lab. Preparing samples from Siberia. Animal bones. All part of the analysis of the unlikely mandible.

    Love this photo! Inspires me to try and get some unusual angle photos while learning the new flint-sourcing technique for my postdoc.
