Correct identification of textile fibres is an important issue in archaeology because the use of different materials can yield crucial information about the society that produced the textiles. Textiles made of plant and animal fibres can normally be easily distinguished, but to distinguish between different types of plant fibres, in particular different types of bast fibres, is difficult.
Some years. The new curves are calculated using Bayesian statistics and.

Rasmussen , I. Degano, M. Colombini, F. Kjeldsen , J. According to legend, the sack appeared on the doorstep of the Friary in the winter of containing bread sent from St Francesco St Francis of Assisi , who at that time was in France. The bread was allegedly brought to the friary by an angel. We analyzed samples of the sack to obtain a radiocarbon C date and to search for any remaining traces of bread. The C date yielded a calibrated age range of AD 2 sigma , which places the textile in the right timeframe according to the legend.
Chemical analysis by gas-chromatography with mass spectrometric detection GC-MS revealed the presence of ergosterol 5, 7, ergostatrien-3b-ol , a known biomarker of brewing, baking, or agriculture. In this paper we have further substantiated the validity of ergosterol as a biomarker for the past presence of bread. It appears that there is a fine correspondence between the Franciscan legend and the two most decisive scientific methods relevant for analyzing the sack.
Although it is not proof, our analysis shows that the sack indeed could be authentic. Overview Fingerprint.

An archaeometric multi-technique approach has been undertaken to date an early industrial (midth century) continuous limekiln in Calders (Catalonia, NE.
Metrics details. Aims of the study were the identification of the main glass compositions and their contextualisation in Late-Antique groups; the identification of provenance of raw glass, and, consequently, of commercial routes; the extent, if any, of recycling glass cullet, as an alternative to the import of fresh raw glass; the identification of possible connections between archaeological typology and glass chemical composition.
Sr and Nd isotopic analysis confirmed that the composition of the three glasses derive from coastal sands of the Syro-Palestinian and Egyptian shore, with a slight shift in comparison to the published data. Little evidence of recycling was identified in the assemblage. In the 5 th century, a secondary glass workshop devoted to the shaping of glass vessels starting from raw glass chunks and, possibly, glass cullet, was active in the area of the harbour.
Comparisons between Classe and Aquileia show that during the Late Antiquity these sites seem to be supplied of raw glass by the same trade routes. In addition, some connections between types and chemical compositions were highlighted. The present study is part of a wider research project about glass production, trade and consumption in the North Adriatic Italy, covering the time interval between the Early Iron Age and the Middle Ages.

Radiocarbon dating: radioactive carbon decays to nitrogen with a half-life of years. In dead material, the decayed 14C is not replaced and its concentration in the object decreases slowly. To obtain a truly absolute chronology, corrections must be made, provided by measurements on samples of know age. The most suitable types of sample for radiocarbon dating are charcoal and well-preserved wood, although leather, cloth, paper, peat, shell and bone can also be used. Because of the somewhat short half-life of 14C, radiocarbon dating is not applicable to samples with ages greater than about 50, years, because the remaining concentration would be too small for accurate measurement.
Thermoluminescence dating: this method is associated with the effect of the high energy radiation emitted as a result of the decay or radioactive impurities. Because of the half-lives of U, nd, and 40K are very long, their concentrations in the object, and hence the radiation dose they provide per year, have remained fairly constant. The most suitable type of sample for thermoluminescence dating is pottery, though the date gotten will be for the last time the object was fired.
Application of this method of age determination is limited to those periods of pottery and fired clay availability from about BC to the present.
