ABSTRACT
Our paper presents the composition and the morphological characteristics of the surface and interior of certain garment accessories found during the archaeological diggings made at Ibida, in Slava Rusă, Tulcea county, Romania. Based on that, we evaluated a series of archaeometric attributes concerning their evolution from disposal to discovery. Our study involved the EDX and micro-FTIR techniques. By corroborating those analyses we could establish the composition of the base alloy and of the compounds that formed underground.
