This volume presents a range of petrographic case studies as applied to archaeological problems, primarily in the field of pottery analysis, i.e. ceramic petrography. Petrographic analysis involves using polarising optical microscopy to examine microstructures and the compositions of rock and mineral inclusions in thin section, and has become a widely used technique within archaeological science. The results of these analyses are commonly embedded in regionally specific reports and research papers. In this volume, however, the analytical method takes centre stage and the common theme is its application in different archaeological contexts.
Contents: 1) Henry Clifton Sorby (1826-1908) and the development of thin section petrography in Sheffield (Noel Worley); 2) The provenance potential of igneous glacial erratics in Anglo-Saxon ceramics from northern England (Rob Ixer & Alan Vince); 3) Technological insights into bell-beakers: a case study from the Mondego Plateau, Portugal (Ana Jorge); 4) Indigenous tableware production during the archaic period in western Sicily: new results from petrographic analysis (Giuseppe Montana, Anna Maria Polito & Ioannis Iliopoulos); 5) Petrographic & microstratigraphic analysis of mortar-based building materials from the temple of Venus, Pompeii (Rebecca Piovesan, Emmanuele Curti, Celestino Grifa, Lara Maritan & Claudio Mazzoli; 6) Provenance & production technology of Early Bronze Age pottery from a lake-dwelling settlement at Arquà Petrarca, Padova, Italy (Lara Maritan, Claudio Mazzoli, Marta Tenconi, Giovanni Leonardi & Stefano Boaro); 7) Ceramic technology & social process in late neolithic Hungary (Attila Kreiter, György Szakmány & Miklós Kázmér; 8) Early pottery technology & the formation of a technological tradition: the case of Theopetra Cave, Thessaly, Greece (Areti Pentedeka & Anastasia Dimoula); 9) Fine-grained Middle Bronze Age polychrome ware from Crete: combining petrographic & microstructural analysis (Edward W. Faber, Peter M. Day & Vassilis Kilikoglou; 10) Pottery technology and regional exchange in Early Iron Age Crete (Marie-Claude Boileau, Anna Lucia dAgata & James Whitley; 11) The movement of Middle Bronze Age transport jars a provenance study based on petrographic and chemical analysis of Canaanite jars from Memphis, Egypt (Mary Ownby & Janine Bourriau); 12) Petrographic analysis of EB iii ceramics from Tall al-Umayri, Jordan: a re-evaluation of levels of production (Stanley Klassen); 13) Comparison of volcaniclastic-tempered Inca imperial ceramics from Paria, Bolivia with potential sources (Veronika Szilágyi & György Szakmány); 14) Multi-village specialized craft production & the distribution of Hokoham sedentary period pottery, Tuscon, Arizona (James M. Heidke); 15) A preliminary evaluation of the Verde confederacy model: testing expectations of pottery exchange in the central Arizona highlands (Sophia E. Kelly, David R. Abbott, Gordon Moore, Christopher Watkins & Caitlin Wichlacz); 16) Ceramic petrography & the reconstruction of hunter-gatherer craft technology in Late Prehistoric Southern California (Patrick Quinn & Margie Burton).
