Chinese scientists explore new dating technique for ceramics
Initial research for the dating of Ecuadorian cultures was concentrated on the Chanduy valley area, where 12 important sites from different periods and other related sites are located. Potters still use the same clay sources as their ancestors and thus the Chanduy valley is a good laboratory for the project.

New ceramic dating process unearthed
January 10, Dating clay-based materials like ceramics recovered from archeological sites can be time consuming, not to mention complex and expensive. Patrick Bowen, a senior majoring in materials science and engineering, is refining a new way of dating ceramic artifacts that could one day shave thousands of dollars off the cost of doing archaeological research. Called rehydroxylation dating, the technique was recently developed by researchers at the University of Manchester and the University of Edinburgh.
First, dry the sample at degrees Celcius. This removes any dampness that the ceramic might have absorbed.

The present invention relates to a method for shaping a green body of ceramic powder or, more particularly, to a method for shaping a green body of ceramic powder by use of a novel binder capable of giving improved mechanical strengths and shape retainability of the green body before firing as well as high smoothness of the surface thereof and also relates to a ceramic body obtained by firing the green body. As is well known, so-called ceramics in the general categorization include an extremely wide diversity of materials in the types of materials as well as in the uses of the products.
Irrespective of the type of the material, most of the ceramic products are manufactured according to the principle that a shaped body called agreen body is first shaped of a powder of the ceramic material and then the green body is fired to cause sintering of the particles of the ceramic powder. When the ceramic powder is selected, in particular, from various kinds of ferrites, titanates, alumina, cordierite, titanium dioxide, silicon carbide, silicon nitride and the like, problems are encountered in the insufficient workability of the ceramic powder in shaping and mechanical strengths and shape retainabililty of the green body so that it is a usual practice that the ceramic powder is blended with an organic binder with an object to improve the above mentioned properties.
The method for shaping a green body of the blend of the ceramic powder and the binder can be roughly classified into the wet process and the dry process practiced according to the kind of the binder and the type of the desired ceramic product. The binder suitable for the wet process is exemplified by methyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, starch and the like, among which methyl cellulose is used most widely.
On the other hand, the dry process is undertaken by use of a binder such as polyvinyl alcohol, methyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, sodium alginate and the like, among which polyvinyl alcohol is preferred in the modern technology of ceramics. When ceramic green bodies are shaped by extrusion molding in the wet process, metyl celluloses or carboxymethyl celluloses giving an aqueous solution of high viscosity are preferred as the binder from the standpoint of obtaining good shape retainability of the wet green body after extrusion although there is a problem of the insufficient mechanical strengths of the dried shaped body before firing.
This problem is more serious when starch is used as the binder. When polyvinyl alcohols are used as the binder, considerable improvements can be obtained in the mechanical strengths of the dried green body but the shape retainability of the wet green body is poor because polyvinyl alcohols usually give an aqueous solution of relatively low viscosity.
In addition, the surface of the extruded body is not always in good condition. Alternatively, there has been proposed a method of shaping a green body of ceramic powder by extrusion using a non-aqueous solvent as the binding medium in place of water.
A group of scientists from the University of Bristol has come up with a new, revolutionary method of dating pottery which will enable archaeologists to date prehistoric discoveries across the world with unprecedented precision and accuracy. According to reports, the new method is already being used to date pottery from a variety of key sites up to 8, years old in Britain, Europe, and Africa , and experts are exited.
Archaeological pottery has been used to date archaeological sites for more than a century, and from the Roman period onward it can offer quite an accurate dating.
In this work we present some results about thermoluminescent dating of some archaeological ceramic samples belonging to Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico.
Ceramics Resource Guide: Background Information
The MCD is calculated by multiplying the number of sherds of a given type by the mid-point of the date range for that type based on absolute dates or the known production interval , summing those values for all types, and then dividing by the total ceramic count South The script provided here also uses a bootstrapping procedure to estimate the error confidence interval associated with a given mean ceramic date.
For each site, 1, bootstrapped replicates are created by resampling with replacement from the original data. The sample sizes for each row are held constant, equal to the total number of sherds in that row in the original data and with the probability of drawing each ceramic type determined by the actual proportions of that type in the observed sample. MCDs are then calculated for each of these bootstrapped replicates to provide a means of assessing sampling error associated with the original MCD.

An 18th-century teapot. Determining the age of ceramic specimens has been a pivotal issue for archaeologists and researchers at museums, as well as antiquities brokers. Not only does it require extensive knowledge of relevant fields but also, it needs the help of scientific methods, such as the commonly used radiocarbon dating and rehydroxylation RHX dating. The company will provide financial support so that the institute could further the dating research on its collection of some 10, ceramic samples and improve the RHX dating method.
And the research progress will be shared with the company for providing charged authentication services. Feng Songlin, a researcher of the institute, says there hasn’t been an omnipotent method for dating, and the RHX dating method is still under development because comparisons should be made among enough samples from different time periods and kilns in different areas. He says the method can roughly determines the age of a ceramic sample and to know its kiln of birth and artistic features, it still relies on the appraisal of ceramic experts.
At the signing ceremony, several ceramics that had been authenticated by Royal Heritage were on show.

Historical archaeologists have learned that excavated ceramics can be used to date the sites they study. The most useful ceramics for dating are the glazed, relatively highly fired, fine-bodied earthenwares common since the late eighteenth century. By around , European ceramic manufacturers had begun a concerted effort to mass-produce fine-bodied, durable earthenwares for the world market.
Their overall plan imitated the Chinese, who had already developed porcelain factories for the production of vessels explicitly designed for export. The Europeans also attempted to mimic the porcelain itself by initially producing white-bodied earthenwares with blue decorations similar to those found on the Asian wares. European potters viewed their glaze formulas, decorative motifs, and production techniques as company-owned trade secrets, and because they worked within a competitive commercial environment, they usually kept meticulous records of their patterns,
New Revolutionary Method for Dating Ancient Pottery Could Rewrite History
Rehydroxylation [RHX] dating is a developing method for dating fired-clay ceramics. This reaction reincorporates hydroxyl OH groups into the ceramic material, and is described as rehydroxylation RHX. This weight increase provides an accurate measure of the extent of rehydroxylation. The dating clock is provided by the experimental finding that the RHX reaction follows a precise kinetic law: the weight gain increases as the fourth root of the time which has elapsed since firing.
The concept of RHX dating was first stated in by Wilson and collaborators  who noted that “results

Technique pinpoints age of ancient relics
Scientists have found a way of dating archaeological ceramics – by defining how they react with moisture from the air. The simple method promises to be as important for dating ceramic materials as carbon dating has become for organic materials such as bone or wood. A team from the Universities of Manchester and Edinburgh has discovered the technique, which can be used on fired clay ceramics such as bricks, tiles and pottery.
Working with the Museum of London, the team has dated brick samples from Roman, medieval and modern periods with remarkable accuracy. Their technique has been used to determine the age of objects up to 2, years old – and the team is confident that it will date ceramics 10, years old and more.
The technique of transfer printing under the glaze is also a diagnostic feature; the FLMNH’s date of production range for transfer-printed pearlware is

Since prehistoric times, engineered ceramic and glass materials have had significant roles in most technologies. Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries going back thousands of years. Once humans discovered that clay could be found in abundance and formed into objects by first mixing with water and then firing, a key industry was born. In this location, hundreds of clay figurines representing Ice Age animals were also uncovered near the remains of a horseshoe-shaped kiln.
In these conditions, radiocarbon dating of ceramic fragments is the only reliable way to obtain of radiocarbon dates from a specific cultural phenomenon.
By measuring moisture recombination in ceramics, scientists have found a new way to date ancient pottery and brickwork.
