Abstract

In this paper we present the application of various neutron-based methods carried out at the Budapest Neutron Centre. Non-destructive and non-invasive neutron radiography (NR), prompt gamma activation analysis (PGAA) and time-of-flight neutron diffraction (TOF-ND) analysis were applied to reveal more information on raw material and production techniques of bronze artefacts that can be dated to the Central European Bronze Age (2000-1200 BC).
