Assignment 2: Stable Isotope Report Due: November 1st at the start of class Select a type of stable isotope analysis that was either discussed in class or is typically used in archaeology. Examples include but are not limited to oxygen, strontium, nitrogen, and carbon (not carbon dating though). Write this report in basic language similar to that which you found in the popular press articles from assignment one. This report should be written for the non-specialist and should be easy for the reader to comprehend. It is important that the report makes it clear that you fully understand how the technique works and what are its applications. A paper copy is required for marking. Your report must include : -A brief history and background of the technique (who invented it, when, what was its first use in archaeology) -The science and math behind the technique -A short case-study, demonstrating its use in archaeology

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
