I am excited about the growth of applications of the physical sciences to archaeology.  We are just beginning to witness tremendous advances in technology and the understanding of science that will forever change the way we do archaeology and interpret the past.   The contribution of materials science to our discipline transcends the boundaries between processual and post-processual approaches.
