Field based Near Infrared analysis of Rock paintings in northern Scandinavia

Rock art and rock paintings attract a lot of scientific interest in archaeology and various archaeometric approaches have been applied in order to shed light on pigment composition etc. This study comprises of field based NIR measurements on rock paintings from late Stone Age in northern Scandinavia. Different documentation approaches have been tested where simplicity and true field functions have been key words. Seven different sites have been investigated and generated large amounts of multivariate data requiring multivariate data analysis. Spectral information and classification results from these sites are presented and also some archaeological implications.
