The Leiden GeoArch group organised a visit to the sedimentology laboratory at Leiden University College, Den Haag. The lab is led by physical geographer Peter Houben and fluvial geomorphologist Paul Hudson. There, they conduct various sedimentological analyses like grain-size analysis and pH measurements.
Our visit started with an introductory session where Paul and Peter presented their work and research. We then moved on to the sedimentology lab where they showed us their facilities and talked about future plans for expanding the lab.
Finally, we discussed the potential for collaboration in research and teaching.
We hope that our visit will provide foundations for the development of a geoarchaeological connection between the Faculty of Archaeology (Leiden University) and Leiden University College.
