Archaeological Science at Flinders University is taking giant leaps forward to unlock mysteries of the past.

Applying cutting edge technologies to realise new archaeology possibilities, Dr Ian Moffat leads a team involved in crucial international research collaborations that identify how climate variations through history have affected human evolution – by analysing 200,000-year-old animal teeth through a mass spectrometer.
