Abstract

This paper presents a first archaeometric approach to the study of the use of pigments in the context of the technological organization of prehistoric societies in Rio Santa Lucia. The chemical and mineralogical composition of potential colorants found in archaeological contexts and of pigment residues on ceramic and lithic materials are analyzed in an exploratory way, applying the analytical techniques of X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Mössbauer Spectroscopy (TMS) and X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF). It was possible to identify mineral components such as hematite (Fe2O3) and goethite (FeO(OH)).
