We work with you to accomplish your research goals.
We offer a wide range of analytical, research, and consulting services in the archaeological, palaeontological, and geological sciences.
Our services include investigations of the chemical and structural characteristics of natural and anthropogenic materials using sophisticated geochemical and spectroscopic instrumentation.
We also provide statistical and calibration support for applications such as multivariate hypothesis testing and radiocarbon calibration.
All cultural heritage projects are sub-consulted collaboratively with the Musqueam Archaeology Department.
Some of our top services…
Lithic Sourcing and Provenance
Where did these rocks come from? We apply cutting-edge analytical techniques and sophisticated statistical approaches to ensure you have the most confidence in your results as possible.
What is this stuff? Is this material safe? We can help you collect and interpret data to ensure you’re comparing apples-to-apples and handling objects safely.
Thermal Maturity and Temperature Estimates
How hot were these rocks? We are specialists in applying spectroscopic techniques to assess just how ‘cooked’ the carbonaceous material is in your samples.
