The paper presents an application of carbon isotope analysis in the archaeometric research of graphite-tempered ceramics. Graphite separated from Celtic graphitic ceramics were analysed from Szűr, Szajk and Dunaszentgyörgy archaeological sites from the South Transdanubian region of Hungary. Variation in δ13C values of graphite in the sampling sites is attributed to the characteristics of graphitic metamorphic rock used for tempering. The carbon isotope results will serve as basis for further provenance research on graphite.

The geo-archeological study of these burial and dwelling mounds is very important, since these were the very first archeological sites to be included in geo-archeological research studies ( Jefferson 1783 ; Vanuxem 1843 ; Forchhammer et al. 1851
