Abstract

Recently opened for users at LNF XLab-Frascati a μXRF station, named "Rainbow X-ray" - RXR, has been optimized for most of X-ray analytical research fields. The basic principle of the station is in the use of various geometrical combinations of polycapillary optics for X-ray beam shaping (focusing/collimation) at specially designed laboratory unit.In this work we have presented the results of archaeological studies on the artifacts of Paleolithic period and Iron Age (9th century BC to the midway of the 8th BC). The elemental analysis of these artifacts has been first performed by compact laboratory setup. Superficial (2D) and bulk (3D) micro-fluorescence mapping provides useful informations for the geologists in order to identify the possible artifacts provenience and origin. The results presented in this work are a part of wider anthropological/archeological investigations aimed at the understanding of social and economical relations of prehistorical communities.
