Archäometrische Untersuchungen frühmittelalterlicher Keramik aus Frohsdorf, Pitten und Erlach, Niederösterreich (Archaeometric Analysis of Early Medieval Ceramic Finds from the Sites of Frohsdorf, Pitten and Erlach, Lower Austria)
Studien zu Spätantike und Frühmittelalter
The paper presents archaeometric analyses of pottery vessels from the early mediaeval, 8th–9th century cemeteries of Frohsdorf, Pitten and Erlach (Lower Austria). According to the metal finds, as well as to the macroscopic characteristics of the pottery, the cemetery of Frohsdorf belongs to the ‘Avar’ milieu. From Pitten and Erlach come divergent finds which are usually connected with the ‘Slavs’. Using petrographic thin-section analysis the pottery vessels were investigated as to whether or how far both population groups were connected by common technological traditions of pottery production.
