Taking residue samples from Palaeolithic tools

Yesterday (Friday, November 9), I went to the Kanagawa Prefectural Archaeology Center (URL: Japanese only). I looked at Palaeolithic stone tools found from the Yoshioka sites and took residue samples for my analysis.

Residue samples


In this survey, sampled stone tools are andesite and decayed mostly. Can I find any starch granules from them? I'm starting my observation from next week.
