Oxford Archaeological Lead Isotope Database


The collection of samples of ores and slags from Cyprus was done mostly in collaboration with Dr. George Maliotis from the Hellenic Mining Company Ltd. Before 1995 our collaborators were Prof. Ulrich Zwicker, Dr. Walter Fasnacht, and the Director and Deputy Director of the Cypriot Geological Survey, Dr. G. Constantinou and Dr. A. Panayiotou. All samples of archaeological artefacts were taken with the permission of the Cyprus Department of Antiquities and the archaeologists: Prof. Vassos Karageorghis, Prof. John Coleman, Prof. P. Aström and Dr. Alison South, whilst other samples of Cypriot metal artefacts came from the Medelhavsmuseet in Stockholm, the Ashmolean Museum and the British Museum.
