ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF CERAMICS FROM SITES MAIBE (NA98/106), OLOUNOU-AMVAN, AND UNGWAR KURA, AFRICA

Author(s): Melissa K. Logan

Year: 2009

Summary

Ceramic sherds from three separate sites, Maibe (NA98/106), Olounou-Amvan, and

Ungwar Kura in Africa were submitted for organic residue analysis. The ceramics were tested

for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The primary

objective of this analysis was to determine the peaks present in the samples and the organic

compounds these peaks represent; however, matches were run against tubers, legumes,

members of the Poaceae family, and various plant oils, as processing of these types of plants

with the ceramics was suspected.
