Abstract

The analysis of two important groups of jewellery from Riqqa (Tomb 124 and Tomb 296) provides an opportunity to consider a single location and if there is any continuity of workshop traditions between the Middle Kingdom and the New Kingdom, and any possible differences with regard to the alloys employed. The objects were analysed by XRF, μPIXE, and SEM-EDS, and the composition of the gold alloys from both burials are discussed and compared with published data from the same periods. PGE inclusions were observed in almost all jewellery , indicating the use of alluvial gold. The analysis of some joins has confirmed the use of hardsoldering, with solders obtained by addition of Cu to the base alloy.
