MONTOYA, Eduardo; GLOWACKI, Mary; ZAPATA, Julinho y MENDOZA, Pablo. Chemical characterization of archaeological ceramics by neutron activation analysis: a study in the production and distribution of middle horizon pottery from Cuzco, Peru. Rev. Soc. Quím. Perú [online]. 2009, vol.75, n.4, pp. 473-478. ISSN 1810-634X.
The k0 based instrumental neutron activation analysis has been used, as a quantitative characterization tool, to establish the provenience of the Wari pottery found in Middle Horizon archaeological sites at Cuzco, Peru. The results indicate a bidirectional exchange of pottery between Ayacucho and Cuzco along the Middle Horizon Period. Other archaeological inferences from the results of the chemical analysis are discussed.
