Abstract

This chapter summarizes the ways in which the technique of X‐ray diffraction can be used in the study of ancient material artifacts, including ceramics, metals, pigments, glass, and other objects. It discusses how XRD can be used to characterize their mineralogical composition, interpret their raw materials, provenance, and manufacturing technology, and study their degradation.
