Professor Jones has been working in the relatively new field of Archaeometry in recent years. A recent paper by Professor Jones with two BYU undergraduate students has been published in BYU Studies, 37:128-142 (1998), "Archaeometry Applied to Olmec Iron-ore Beads." In that research, they applied x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, electron microprobe analysis, photomicroscopy, and magnetometer analysis to 3,000-year-old artifacts found in Southern Mexico.
