Neutron Activation Analysis of Ceramics from California
PROJECT Uploaded by: Matthew Boulanger

This project pertains to the compositional analysis of ceramic materials from the United States. These data were generated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (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.

POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, STARCH, PARASITE, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM THE MARKET STREET CHINATOWN SITE, SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA (2012)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings. Chad Yost.

Ten samples were selected from a collection of 145 samples recovered during archaeological salvage excavations of the Market Street Chinatown in downtown San Jose, California, from 1985-1986. These ten samples were analyzed for pollen, starches, parasites, phytoliths, and macrofloral remains as part of a pilot study in the “Archaeology of the Urban Environment in 19th Century San Jose.” Excavations revealed features such as trash pits, wood-lined cesspools, wells, and open-air dumps. Most of the...


USA Ceramics: Compositional and Descriptive Data (2014)
DATASET Matthew Boulanger. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

This dataset contains compositional (elemental abundance) and descriptive data for a total of 21 ceramic and clay specimens from California 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 these...
