Neutron Activation Analysis of Ceramics from Iran


This project pertains to the compositional analysis of ceramic materials from Iran. 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.
