Abstract or Summary
  • The present thesis chemically examined 174 industrial North Staffordshire pottery fragments from an archaeological context, using Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA). In an integrated effort to combine an archaeometric approach with archival research and traditional analysis methods, the purpose of the thesis was to link industrial pottery manufacturers recipes to their corresponding chemical signatures. In order to associate a ceramic artifact with a paste recipe, it was hypothesized that each company utilized a standardized, yet specialized recipe, resulting in homogenous and distinctive chemical compositions. The findings suggest, that indeed, pottery companies were developing unique paste recipes and could be recognized by their chemical signatures. The results suggest the possibility of implementing an alternative analytical tool in historic ceramic analyses.
