Ancient pottery chemical composition data-Lijiaba site
The dataset presented here (see below Table 1) is a supplemental materials for our published paper in Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research B 296 (2013) 1-6 (Q.Q. Wu, et al.,), entitled “PIXE-RBS analysis on potteries unearthed from Lijiaba site”. The dataset includes the measured values of chemical composition (wt.%) by the PIXE-RBS method for 54 ancient pottery shard samples unearthed from Lijiaba site and 17 ancient pottery shard samples unearthed from Jinsha site. As for 54 ancient pottery shard samples unearthed from Lijiaba site, according to archeological classification, they are divided into 9 types, i.e., jam with neck, cup with sharp bottom, dou with high stem, jam with round bottom, pot with big mouth and deep abdominal, pot with wavy neck, normal pot, basin and bowl, and denoted by Type 1-9 in Table 1, respectively and the Labels in Table 1 were given by archeologists when these pottery shards were excavated. The 17 ancient pottery shard samples unearthed from Jinsha site are denoted by No 1-17 in Table 1, respectively. The dataset presented here is extracted from the Master thesis of Q.Q. Wu, i.e., Applications of Ion Beam Analysis technique in some researches, Sichuan University, China, 2013.
