Abstract
  • This dataset contains trace-element data, descriptive information, and photographs for 328 field clays sampled in the Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico; mineralogical data are presented for a subset of the samples. The clay samples were generated as part of a valley-wide sampling strategy designed to capture spatial variation in clay composition and to establish a basis for fine-grained ceramic provenance determination within the valley (Minc and Sherman 2011). Given the size of the data set, the data are organized by field season: 2007 and 2012. In addition, we include data from a more intensive survey conducted around the site of Yaasuchi (YCS), conducted as part of Pink’s (2014) MA thesis research. The goal of these surveys was to characterize regional trends in clay composition throughout the valley, as these reflect differences in parent material, as a basis for determining the provenance of archaeological ceramics. Not all clays sampled are suitable potting clays; however, their chemistry and mineralogy is generally indicative of potting clay composition for a given locale. Each clay is given a unique lab identification number (INAA ID) that may be used to relate the trace-element data with locational information and paste photos included in this dataset. The data consist of five parts:
