Methodological Issues for Characterisation and Provenance Studies of Obsidian in Northeast Asia

Details

This volume is a collection of papers related to different aspects of obsidian studies (mainly geology, geochemistry, and archaeology) in Northeast Asia. Special focus is on methodological aspects of acquisition and comparison of geochemical data for obsidian sources generated by different analytical methods (NAA, XRF, ICP–MS, and EPMA) and laboratories, conducted in this region for the first time. The updated situation with obsidian source studies in Japan, Russian Far East, and Korean Peninsula is presented. Particular attention is given to the Paektusan Volcano where one of the most important (and still under-studied) sources of obsidian is known.
