This book serves as a practical guide for the application of XRF spectrometry to the study and understanding of archaeology. Early chapters serve as both an introduction to XRF theory and instrumentation as well as an introduction to field applications and practical aspects of archaeology and conservation. These early chapter thus provide those new to XRF and/or new to field archaeology a solid foundation on which to base further study.
