Abstract:
Reports two microscopic finds of Egyptian blue (pigment) from the Tesco car park site, Cirencester, Gloucestershire and from Mill Street, Wantage, Oxfordshire. The fragments came from heavy mineral separates and micromorphological slides from Roman and Saxon sediments respectively, and were compared with laboratory made cuprorivaite. The strong blue colouration, morphology, optics, energy dispersive X-Ray analysis and X-Ray diffraction results are consistent across the range of archaeological and experimental examples. Further issues of origin, manufacturing and taphonomy are also discussed.
