Abstract

Silver, besides copper and gold, is one of the oldest known and used metals. In the ancient times, it was possible to find it in native (pure metal) form, later it was produced by cupellation process from its ores. From the very early times, 3rd millennium B. C., up to now, it is used to produce ornaments, jewellery and coins. In the archaeometry of silver, the most frequently arising questions - similarly to other kind of objects - concern the provenance, the workshop identification and also the authenticity. Certainly, if possible, non-destructive and non-invasive investigations are preferred. In this paper, an overview of the neutron-based analytical methods, their potentials and limitations are discussed. We demonstrate the applicability of the methods through case studies from the practice of the Budapest Neutron Centre or taken from the literature.
