RESEARCH projects

Scientists at GARG are involved in many exciting projects around the globe along two main lines of research (i) Geochronology concern with the timing of Human evolution and (ii) Archaeogeochemistry which investigate the elemental composition of archaeological finds in particular fossil remains and stone tools.



The researchers at GARG are specialised in the direct dating of fossil remains using advanced analytical techniques. From the timing of species emergence and extinction to the timing of human expansion into new region, their innovative work has been featured in scientific journals and newspapers around the world.



Researchers at GARG explore the incorporation of isotopes and trace elements in fossil remains and archaeological finds. The group is particularly interested in the migration, diet and early-life history of hominid species to reconstruct the complex interaction of extinct species with their environment.
