Thin-Section Petrography of Stone & Ceramic

Thin-Section Petrography of Stone & Ceramic

By (author) Chandra Reedy


  • A comprehensive manual of thin-sections of cultural stone and ceramic objects
Full Description
The focus of this book is on the specific applications of thin-section petrography to the study of stone and ceramic cultural materials, exploring how thin-section petrography still has a place in the toolkit of archaeological science and conservation research. Despite the regular emergence of newer methods of analysis and new analytical techniques, thin-section petrography continues to be updated with sophisticated digital image analysis approaches, and therefore has the potential to contribute as much today as in the past.
