The Archaeometry research group of the University of Fribourg

Welcome at the web site of the Archaeometry research group, maintained by the unit of Earth Sciences of the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). Since 1974, our group is involved in archaeometric research and teaching including a wide range of topics and ancient materials, such as ceramics, metals, stones, glass, wall paintings, and experimental archaeology.

Archaeometric research covers a great number of scientific fields. It is truly interdisciplinary, starting from precise questions in the field of archaeology, art history and conservation that cannot be solved without the help of applied natural sciences.

We are organising archaeometry short courses and conferences with invited speakers on a regular basis.
