Hans van der Plicht
Professor by special appointment LUF / guest
Van der Plicht is the scientific leader of the Radiocarbon Laboratory of the University of Groningen as well as a visiting professor in Leiden. Apart from 14C dating and its application to chronological questions in archaeology, stable isotope research (15N and 13C) is performed as well. The analysis of these isotopes from fossil bones allows conclusions about (palaeo)diet, migration, climate change and chronology to be made.
