What are we going to talk about in this episode?


Mass Spectrometry is a fundamental technique used across many science disciplines. Over recent years, instrumentation has helped understand organic residues in pottery, provenence of artefacts, animal faeces and much more. We will explore how mass spectrometry can help is undertand our past and how this can help link to our future.
