Neutron Activation Data for archaeological and geological hematites in central and western Missouri, as well as minimal samples from Illinois. The data was produced at the Archaeometry Laboratory of the University of Missouri Research Reactor. Raw source samples were collected and analyzed originally by Rachel Popelka-Filcoff. Later, source samples were reanalyzed and compared to archaeological hematites by Daniel Pierce and Rachel Popelka-Filcoff. To use this data, one must perform Fe corrections to account for the great influence that Iron plays upon the overall compositional makeup of each sample.
