Ceramics, Trade, Provenience and Geology: All NAA Samples

Data Table Summary
Count of Fields (Columns)
Count of Rows

Combined Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) dataset (ratioed against Scandium) of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) for 1191 Cypriot ceramics (Boulanger 2011) the new NAA results for the Red Lustrous Wheelmade Ware (RLW) from Boğazköy and the Cypriot sediments sorted by group membership.

The LBNL dataset differs from the original in the following respects: outliers identified in the original dataset have been removed; differences in number of elements reported has required reduction to 22 common elements and are presented here as ratios against Scandium; the combined table has been sorted by compositional group and associated geological precinct and site. Note differences in level of descriptive detail a result of variation in collection and recording methodologies of the original LBNL sample contributors.

To facilitate comparative analyses of the multiple datasets presented in the 'Ceramics Trade Provenience and Geology: Cyprus in the Late Bronze Age' data publication project the (Boulanger 2011) dataset has geospatial and chronological metadata added including links to gazetteer references where such metadata and links could be determined with some confidence.
