Abstract

A large number of ceramic sherds from Chavin, Peru, as well as recent clay samples from the same region have been studied by Mössbauer spectroscopy. The changes of the Mössbauer spectra of the clay were studied as a function of firing temperature and atmosphere. From a comparison of these data with those form the sherds one can make estimates of the precolumbian firing conditions.
