In the joint work of physicists and archaeologists will be used only in Russia resonant circular particle accelerator – a synchrotron, told TASS the head of the Phanagorian archeological complex expedition Vladimir Kuznetsov.
“The representatives of the Kurchatov Institute will participate in the work of the expedition – it is possible that on the site. Using different physical hardware, for example, Russia’s only synchrotron, it is possible to determine the age and composition of the artifacts, structure of matter, the origin of the material from which are made coins, utensils or weapons,” he said.
