Abstract

Three cleaning techniques that remove external contamination of human hair are assessed to investigate the potential use of Sr and Pb isotope composition of hair for human provenancing. These techniques are; (i) a centrifugation technique using diiodomethane where hair and soil particles are separated by density difference; (ii) a leaching technique of the hair surface using 2 M HNO
