Researcher Information

Message for high school students

Archeological materials include pottery, stone implements, metal implements, and ancient human remains. At Kyushu University, we regard archeological materials as geological materials (processed rocks and minerals), so we conduct analysis using precision analytical instruments, as well as employing conventional archeological techniques. Through this, based on geoscientific perspectives such as chemical and isotope composition, we pursue research aimed at shedding light on the areas from which the clay, stone, and metals used to make these archeological materials originated and the techniques used to produce them, and on the places of origin of ancient human remains. This new type of research based on interdisciplinary science and innovation that transcends the boundaries between geoscience and archeology is still in its infancy. Why not join the School of Interdisciplinary Science and Innovation, with its diverse faculty, and help us to generate fresh innovation in research?
