Abstract :

Ancient Potteries are among the oldest and most significant technological innovations in the history of human achievement, and were the first truly synthetic material. Spectroscopic techniques are very useful tools to achieve a detailed knowledge of the art works. In the present study thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermal analysis was carried out for pottery samples recovered from the ancient settlements of kaveripakkam, Vellore Dist, Tamilnadu to estimate the firing temperature. The TG-DTG curves were obtained in the temperature range 0-1000oC. The results are discussed and the conclusion is drawn.
