Transition from Surface to Shaft mining in Copper and Bronze Age Serbia

Next Image Title

Artist Name

Copper isotopes behave differently in near-surface environments than in non-weathering environments found deeper in the earth. By sampling copper isotopes (63 and 65) in metal artifacts from Copper and Bronze Age Serbia, Dr. Mathur and his colleagues discovered the approximate time that people of this region were introduced to shaft mining, a technique already in practice in the middle east. Soon to be published in the Journal of Archaeological Science.

Microplate hybridisation to detect PCR product

The illustration shown here uses a reporter system that binds to an enzyme when the PCR product complements the probe sequence. A color change is seen when the enzyme substrate is supplied; if the PCR product does not complement the probe sequence, then no color develops. Alternatively, fluorescent or luminescent reporter systems may be used.
