2015 Recipeint of Student Research International Travel Award Announced

The Society for Archaeological Science is honored to announce that Kuan-Wen Wang, University of Sheffield, was awarded the SAS Spring 2015 Research Travel Award for “Scientific Analysis of Early Iron Age Glass Beads from Taiwan.” 
This project involves chemical analysis, through SEM-EDS and EPMA, on 1st millennium AD glass beads from sites in north-eastern, southern and eastern Taiwan. The results will establish chemical groupings in the region to indicate potential social interaction, both regionally and chronologically, and help elucidate prehistoric trade/exchange networks in the South China Sea region in the transitionary period from the late Neolithic Age to the early Iron Age.
