Abstract

The paper summarizes all papers published by Bulgarian scientists in the field of archaeometry, issued in the last decade. The archaeometric investigations in Bulgaria cover the analyses of chemical composition of bronze, gold, silver, lead, glass, glaze, pottery, mortar, amber, resin and other archaeological objects. For their characterization many instrumental techniques such as AAS, ED-XRF, ICP-AES, INAA, LA-ICP-MS, SEM-EDS, etc. are used. These techniques, together with geophysical methods, archaeomagnetic investigations, dendrochronology and the various dating methods are all covered by the umbrella term ‘archaeometry’. MA programme in archaeometry has been offered in Sofia University ‘St. Kl. Ohridski’ in the last 10 years, whose graduates have been joining archaeological investigations professionally. In this way, archaeology is enriched with new understanding of the role of physics, chemistry, biology and geology.
