Sažetak

The paper presents results of the archaeometric analyses carried out on the Bronze Age pottery, found within the remains of settlements, located in the north-western part of Croatia (Turopolje and Podravina region). The main goal of this study is to determine the availability, types and characteristics of raw materials, as well as to reconstruct part of the technological process (preparation of raw material and firing technique) of pottery production. Potsherds are analysed using optical microscopy and X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD). Detailed mineralogical analysis (XRPD) with emphasis on clay minerals was performed on samples of potential raw material using oriented films of separated clay fraction and different treatments. Comparison between the data obtained from the analyses of potential raw materials and those obtained from the analyses of the pottery suggests that local clay was used for pottery making in the Bronze Age. Results of the study showed that raw material was probably collected in the vicinity of the settlements and that the grog is the most commonly used temper in the analysed samples from both regions. According to the results of performed analyses, there is an indication of a difference in technological choices, i.e. different practice related to pottery firing techniques, be- tween two micro-regions.
