The choice of the materials by potters as a function of use and physical properties and the effect of firing on ceramic materials were investigated.
4- Anthropology studies. Studies on ancient DNA and racemization level of amino acids on human remains (bones and teeth) belonging to the Etruscan (VII-III century b.C.), Nuragic (IX-VII century b.C.), Piceni (VII-III century b.C.), Italian Neolithic populations and single interesting remains, like Paglicci 25and Paglicci 12 (Palaeolithic period), Neandertal specimens, Evangelist Luke, and Conte Ugolino della Gherardesca were carried out.
