The total eight clay brick samples including five archaeologically importance samples from different historical sites and three samples from more than a century old buildings of Kathmandu valley were collected and their mineralogical phases were characterized using X-ray diffraction and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic methods in this study. Mineralogical phases existed in these archaeological and ancient clay bricks are identified as quartz, feldspars, spinel, muscovite, margarite and…
