Where do the Lead Ingots of the Wreck of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer come from? Archaeology compared with physics
Lead isotope composition of many different samples from lead ingots of Roman age from two relics of the Western Mediterranean have been measured. Other lead isotope analysis of ores, metals of lead ingots from mines of sierra Morena and from Cartegena and Sardinia have been accomplished. All the lead isotope measurements have been performed at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, Ispra, Italy. The samples have been prepared in a class 100 clean room using only ultrapure reagents and FEP materials.
