Technological examination of Neolithic-Bronze Age pottery from central and southeast Europe and from the Near East
Abstract Scanning electron microscopy is used to examine sequences of pottery sherds from central and southeast Europe, Greece and the Near East spanning the period from the Neolithic to the BronzeExpand
Pottery Production, Distribution, and Consumption—The Contribution of the Physical Sciences
The study of the life cycle of pottery, from the selection of raw materials and the production stage through distribution and use to ultimate discard, can make a valuable contribution toExpand
Natron as a flux in the early vitreous materials industry: sources, beginnings and reasons for decline
Abstract Natron deposits, the best known of which being those at Wadi Natrun in Egypt, have been used as the flux in the production of vitreous materials from the early 4th millennium BC onwards. InExpand
Radiocarbon dating of the Shroud of Turin
Very small samples from the Shroud of Turin have been dated by accelerator mass spectrometry in laboratories at Arizona, Oxford and Zurich. As controls, three samples whose ages had been determinedExpand
DISCOVERY, PRODUCTION AND USE OF TIN-BASED OPACIFIERS IN GLASSES, ENAMELS AND GLAZES FROM THE LATE IRON AGE ONWARDS: A REASSESSMENT*
Tin-based opacifiers (lead stannate yellow and tin oxide white) were first used in glass production for a short period in Europe from the second to the first centuries bc, and then again throughoutExpand
CERAMIC PRODUCTION, PROVENANCE AND USE : A REVIEW
The contribution of the physical sciences to the reconstruction of the production technology (i.e., processing of raw materials, forming, surface treatments and firing methods) for earthenwares,Expand
THE CHALLENGE OF ‘TECHNOLOGICAL CHOICES’FOR MATERIALS SCIENCE APPROACHES IN ARCHAEOLOGY*
Recently several anthropological and sociological studies have interpreted technologies as cultural choices that are determined as much by local perceptions and the social context as any materialExpand
Strength, Toughness and Thermal Shock Resistance of Ancient Ceramics, and Their Influence on Technological Choice
The basic underlying theory for the strength, toughness and thermal shock resistance of brittle multiphase clay ceramics, together with the measurement procedures to determine these parameters, areExpand
Magnetic viscosity, quadrature susceptibility, and frequency dependence of susceptibility in single‐domain assemblies of magnetite and maghemite
Neel has derived an expression relating the decay of viscous remanent magnetization and the variation of susceptibility with frequency in noninteracting single-domain assemblies of ferrimagneticExpand
Lead glazes in antiquity - Methods of production and reasons for use
Transparent high lead and tin-opacified lead-alkali glazes have been extensively used throughout Europe and the Near East from their first appearance in the Roman era and the tenth- toExpand
