Compositional groupings of some ancient Aegina and eastern Mediterranean pottery

Description

From international conference on application of nuclear data in the field of work of art; Rome-Venice, Italy (24 May 1973). A difficult but most important problem in archaelogy and art history is that of establishing the origins of the various artifacts under study. In the case of pottery, much work has been done in recent years using neutron activation analysis to establish trace element patterns which in optimum instances may be used to match pottexy with the clay source from which it was manufactured. This paper gives some results of research carried out at Brookhaven National Laboratory involving neutron activation ... continued below

Description

From international conference on application of nuclear data in the field of work of art; Rome-Venice, Italy (24 May 1973). A difficult but most important problem in archaelogy and art history is that of establishing the origins of the various artifacts under study. In the case of pottery, much work has been done in recent years using neutron activation analysis to establish trace element patterns which in optimum instances may be used to match pottexy with the clay source from which it was manufactured. This paper gives some results of research carried out at Brookhaven National Laboratory involving neutron activation analysis of samples of potiery and clays from sources in Cyprus, the Aegean area, Palestine, and elsewhere in the Eastern Mediterranean, and the formation of groups of pottery specimens on the basis of these analyses. Some applications of multivariate methods to the problem of grouping the analytical data and some of the archaeological inferences which can be drawn from the data are also discussed. (auth)
