Summary

This dataset contains compositional (elemental abundance) and descriptive data for a total of 1198 ceramic and clay specimens from Greece, analyzed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). These data were generated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) at LBNL between the late 1960s and early 1990s. Data from the LBNL were transferred to the Archaeometry Laboratory at the University of Missouri, where they were digitized for distribution through tDAR. Compositional data for some sherds are drawn from other sources, including publications and personal communications from other researchers. No guarantees are made regarding the accuracy of data provided in digital format by other researchers. See the "Data Source" column to identify which specimens these are. Elemental abundance data could not be located for 231 of these specimens. All descriptive and contextual data are drawn from the Berkeley archives, and may be incomplete.
