Bjurselet artifacts. The Common Kristianstad Flint (Hanaskog) is distinctive in appearance and the results of the EDXRF instrumental analysis yielded a corresponding unique Ca/Fe chemical signature. This may represent iron enrichment from patination (cf. ; 1988, 52). Knutsson, pp. Several analytical methodologies Morey, R.S. A new interface for the Getty Provenance Index® was released on February 27, 2020. The samples from Klagshamn, Östra Torp and Smygehuk are visually alike and bear the same chemical signature; all three originate from the same geological formation of Danian age but are from different localities. 260-261.

The EDXRF results showed that the flint samples from Stevns Klint are all chemically alike on the basis of Si/Ca/Fe and Ca/Fe ratio data, even though they possess markedly different visual qualities and are of different geological ages.

The provenance of modern river sediments may consequently be used to discriminate and identify sediment sources of the past, and to study changes in the hinterland. Provenance studies involve the use of particular artifact traits to establish where the piece was manufactured or the source of the raw materials from which it was made. contributed to the elemental variability in Tables 3-6, irregularities, the Bjurselet artifacts have many of the, latter areas by using different-sized apertures, sition estimates generated for the artifacts from, heavily patinated to yield reliable x-ray, As we have discussed above, Becker (1952) conclud-. Data obtained from two nearby archaeological sites showed that obsidian from the latter two sources was used by c. 7500 bc, while Glass Mountain material was not used (or available) until after 1360± 240 bp.

In the past, numerous studies were carried out on archaeological bronze and tin objects with the aim of determining the sources of tin, but all failed to find suitable fingerprints. These data provide a geochemical foundation for ongoing research devoted to determining contrasts and continuities in the time and space utilization of flint sources in Scandinavian prehistory.

This paper presents new developments on the provenance study of lapis lazuli started by our group in 2008: during the years a multi-technique approach has been exploited to obtain minero-petrographic characterization and creation of a database considering only rock samples of known provenance.

The relationship between major and minor elements, trace element composition, and age of obsidian sources within a volcanic field, is of considerable interest for obsidian source and artifact research in the New and Old World.
