Description/Abstract

This paper proposes a material science-based study to the ceramic assemblage from the Palacio III (Sevilla, Spain) Copper Age tholos tomb, which is part of a larger prehistoric funerary complex that also includes a passage
grave and a cremation cairn. This study examines the existence of relationships between the chemical composition of the vessels, their morphology and stratigraphic context, looking at the use of ceramics as votive offerings and their
change over time.
