By M. Steven Shackley

Since the Nineteen Sixties, x-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF), either wavelength and energy-dispersive have served because the workhorse for non-destructive and damaging analyses of archaeological fabrics. lately eclipsed by way of different instrumentation reminiscent of LA-ICP-MS, XRF is still the mainstay of non-destructive chemical analyses in archaeology, really for volcanic rocks, and so much rather for obsidian. In a global the place history and repatriation concerns force archaeological process and concept, XRF is still a massive device for knowing the human prior, and may stay so for many years to come.

Currently, there's no finished booklet in XRF functions in archaeology at a time while the purposes of transportable XRF and machine XRF instrumentation are exploding really in anthropology and archaeology departments all over the world.

The members to this volume are the specialists within the box, and so much are on the leading edge of the most recent purposes of XRF to archaeological problems.  It covers all proper elements of the sector for those using the latest XRF applied sciences to house very present matters in archaeology.
