|Abstract:||XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive technique used to determine the chemical composition of materials by measuring the fluorescent X-ray emitted from a sample (Renfrew, C. & P. Bahn, 2001. Archaeology: theories, methods and practice. London: Thames & Hudson, 3rd edn, 360–1). The raw data in Appendix 9 were obtained in a study of samples’ fabrics and glazes, which I undertook in conjunction with Dr Mark Eccleston (La Trobe University). Cluster Analysis and Principal Components Analysis of these data produced Figures 5:73‒6, which illustrate which fabrics and glazes are most similar, and therefore most likely to have shared similar raw materials and, potentially, production centres.|
