Ceramics production and trade across the Great Hungarian Plain: Chemical analysis of Bronze Age ceramics from Békés 103 in Eastern Hungary
The Bronze Age in Europe is noted for an increase in foreign interaction and trade, yet some areas show few signs of receiving non-local goods. Using chemical analysis of Bronze Age ceramic pastes from the cemetery of Békés 103 and nearby clay sources, this poster seeks to investigate trade networks and exchange between the people of the site and other areas of the Great Hungarian Plain. Using LA-ICP-MS, we examine the extent of trade and the degree to which the community participated in the exchange of goods compared to other areas of the Great Hungarian Plain. Combining new data with information from previously excavated ceramics, this project further explores the movement of ceramics on the Great Hungarian Plain by examining whether or not there are differences between graves in terms of acquisition and use of local versus non-local ceramics.
