CHARATERIZATION OF CERAMICS UNCOVERED IN THE PAROTA RIVER BASIN AND LAKE SIRAHUEN BASIN, MICHOACÁN, MEXICO: FLUORESCENCE ANALYSIS IN ULTRA-VIOLET LIGHT AND PETROGRAPHY IN THIN SHEETS
This poster shows the results of the petrographic characterization of the ceramics found in the basins of the Parota River and Lake Sirahuen, two archaeological areas surveyed as part of the Proyecto Arqueología y Paisaje del Área Centro Sur de Michoacán. Fluorescence techniques applied are an induction of ultraviolet light and petrographic analysis in thin sheets; the first technique was used as an experimental test to identify variances in a very large sample and thereby to reduce to a viable quantity for lamination. Petrography into thin sheets yielded information on mineralogical composition, manufacturing techniques, and data used to propose a first approach in identifying regions for raw material extraction.
