Summary

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 sherds were not present in the LBNL archives. Rather, they were located in unpublished cultural resource management reports.
