Initially this stemmed out of a curiosity to find out what these objects were made from, but, very quickly, more sophisticated questions were asked — most notably relating to provenance or, in the US, provenience, but see below.

Unfortunately, there is often an inverse relationship between the size and scope of an analytical project and its archaeological usefulness — perhaps because large size leads to a lack of focus, or simply that size leads inevitably to complexity and, consequently, uncertainty. Although archaeology is a historical discipline, in that its aim is to reconstruct events in the past, it is not the same as history.

Undoubtedly, their archaeological interests were minor compared to their overall contribution to chemistry, but it is instructive to see how these great scientists included the analysis of archaeological objects as part of their process of discovery.
