This research has been focused on the study of mortars from four bridges of the ancient city of Foligno (Umbria, Italy), located along the old path of the Topino-Tinia River. An archaeometric study was undertaken to analyse ten archaeological samples in order to define textural features, chemical composition and raw materials used for their production. For this purpose, different analytical methods were used, such as polarising optical microscope (POM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and electron microprobe analysis coupled with energy-dispersive spectrometry (EMPA-EDS).

Abstract

This research has been focused on the study of mortars from four bridges of the ancient city of Foligno (Umbria, Italy), located along the old path of the Topino-Tinia River. An archaeometric study was undertaken to analyse ten archaeological samples in order to define textural features, chemical composition and raw materials used for their production. For this purpose, different analytical methods were used, such as polarising optical microscope (POM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and electron microprobe analysis coupled with energy-dispersive spectrometry (EMPA-EDS).
