The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina represents one of the most important cultural center of Sarajevo. It has a large collection of archaeological objects including bronzes. The determination of the provenance of the raw material is an ongoing challenge and can provide useful information to archaeologists. The fulfilment of this task is related also to the determination of the major and trace elements of the alloy itself. In this work fifteen objects have been selected to perform elemental analysis.

Abstract

The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina represents one of the most important cultural center of Sarajevo. It has a large collection of archaeological objects including bronzes. The determination of the provenance of the raw material is an ongoing challenge and can provide useful information to archaeologists. The fulfilment of this task is related also to the determination of the major and trace elements of the alloy itself. In this work fifteen objects have been selected to perform elemental analysis. The aim was to widen the knowledge of the archaeometallurgy within the central Balkan area. The analyses have been carried out by Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (SEM-EDS) and Electron Micro Probe Analyser (EMPA).
