Welcome to Archaeological Recidue Analysis Lab
Ceramic & Pottery
  • Pottery appeared in the history of Earth during the last phase of the Pleistocene. Holocene has witnessed continuous advancements on the production technology of pottery. Various ceramics, as containing, storing, and religious worshipping tools, are closely related to archaeological sites in different historical periods. The laboratory is currently testing pottery of all kinds. The analysis will focus on plant residues remaining on the surface of pottery and can provide scientific evidence of the function of the pottery. Please head that some specimen influenced by all kinds of natural wearing during burial will produce different degrees of weathering traces. When such severe weathered specimens are examined in the preliminary sampling process, some pottery particles may fall apart due to the ultrasonic vibrations. Please pay more attention during the sending process and shipment and make detailed communication with our lab consultant.
