In 2016, a Stollhof-type copper hoard was found during an excavation in Magyaregres, Hungary. It was placed in a cooking pot, and deposited upside down within the boundaries of an Early Copper Age settlement. Similar hoards dating to the end of the 5th millennium BCE are well-known from Central Europe, however, this hoard represents the only one so...

A nagyváradi csüngő különleges tárgy, annak ellenére, hogy típusára, kialakítására nézve nem rendkívüli darab a polikróm ötvösmunkák körében. Ráadásul régészeti kontextusa is ismeretlen, mivel szórványként került elő. Ezt a gránátberakásos aranyékszert sajátos története emeli ki a többi közül, ami több szálon és több idősíkban fut. Előkerülése a ré...

The use of non-destructive and non-invasive analytical methods is widespread in the archaeometric study of metal objects, particularly in the case of precious metal artefacts, from which sampling is not, or in a limited way, allowed due to their high value. In this study, we highlight the main advantages and limitations of non-destructive analytica...

Jewellery, dress accessories and other personal ornaments made of precious metal and decorated with gemstones were representative elements (prestige objects) of Migration-period supra-regional fashion in Europe. Due to their valuable materials and impressive appearance, these polychrome artefacts are highlighted items in art albums and exhibition c...

The paper presents a preliminary report on a new ritual deposit of the European Hun period, discovered near Telki in central Hungary. The archaeological and archaeometric analysis of the finds is currently in progress. The assemblage is made up of elements of horse gear, personal adornments (the mounts of a shoeset and at least three belts) and wea...
Article
Complementary neutron-based elemental analytical and imaging methods, i.e. position sensitive prompt gamma activation analysis and neutron tomography, were used on a bronze sculpture group of suspected South-Levantine origin. Based on the radiography and tomography images, individual figurines were chosen for elemental analysis. Selected parts were...

In this paper we present the application of various neutron-based methods carried out at the Budapest Neutron Centre. Non-destructive and non-invasive neutron radiography (NR), Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis (PGAA) and time-of-flight Neutron Diffraction (TOF-ND) analysis was applied to reveal more information on raw material and production techni...

Non-invasive, archaeometric analyses on selected Hungarian Bronze Age defensive armour is presented here: three greaves, three helmets two shields as well as one vessel fragment were analysed with PIXE, PGAA and TOF-ND. The detected alloy elemental and phase composition as well as its intergranular or spatial concentration distribution reveals impo...

Abstract of PhD thesis submitted in 2013 to the Archaeology Doctoral Programme, Doctoral School of History, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest under the supervision of Tivadar Vida.
Article

Recently we have developed a new method in the SEM laboratory of Department of Petrology and Geochemistry; Eötvös Loránd University, in order to perform in situ mineral chemical and textural examination of artifacts. This method called as "original surface investigation method" allows to complete non-destructive in situ textural and mineral chemica...

Red gemstones identified mostly as garnets generally occurred in the 5th-6th-century Europe as inlay decoration of fine metalwork. Their majority are known in cut and mounted form – loose, unmounted pieces are very rarely found. For that reason, it is of great importance that a few years ago seventeen such loose red gemstones were unearthed at a re...

The cloisonné buckle found as a stray find at Rákóczifalva-Kastélydomb close to Szolnok adds to the so-called "Mediterranean buckles" dated to the end of 5 th century, beginning of 6 th century. Finds of this type were designated in the literature by its supposed origin deduced from its main spread area and from decorating tradition. However, by ex...

Our current research work has two main objectives: 1) the characterisation and determination of the geological sources of the garnets decorating the metalwork objects 2) the identification and interpretation of the indirect signs of the trade in garnets, their supply and distribution
