A scheme for INAA of pottery is proposed. The combination of 3 irradiations-epithermal and pile (short and long time) and 6 measurements (2 times after each irradiation) enables the determination of Al, As, Au, Ba, Br, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Dy, Eu, Fe, Hf, K, La, Lu, Mg, Mn, Na, Nd, Rb, Sb, Sc, Si, Sm, Ta, Tb, Th, Ti, U, V and Yb. The accuracy and precision of the method is evaluated by analysis of standard reference materials (USGS-BCR-1, USGS-W-1, ZGI-TB). The applicability of the method is demonstrated by analysis of 15 sgraffito ceramics from XV–XVIII cc. from Tzarevetz, Veliko Tirnovo (Bulgaria). The results from the clustering of the analytical data are presented and discussed.
