This is for testing the conversion of the text and the extraction of the Abstract and the References. We know we can extract straight text from PDFs using Apache Tika, this a two column PDF so it will be interesting to see if the PDFBox code that Tika uses figures out the columns. Oh additionally we will see if the DOIs are also extracted. Once this works even a little we can work on the presentation of the note. Mobility_and_trade_in_Mediterranean_anti.pdf

The Late Bronze Age (ca. 1700/1600–1050 BCE) in the Aegean started with strong connections between societies in the region and beyond, and was accompanied by the collapse of palatial polities around 1200 BCE. The collapse led to unrest and migration in the East Mediterranean. In the present study, we focus on settlement contexts dating to the transition between the Mycenaean palatial and post-palatial periods (ca. 1250–1050 BCE) in Greece, which saw the destruction of the Mycenaean palaces (ca. 1200 BCE). We aim to shed light on trade connections and mobility in the region during this substantial period through ancient DNA of livestock.
