The continuous demand for new analytical methods for use in studies of relevance to art and archaeology has prompted researchers to investigate the possible applications of a variety of non-conventional and innovative analytical techniques. Secondary ion mass spectrometry was first used in this field in the 1980s and a number of applications have revealed its potential and limitations in the study of ancient materials. This paper presents an overview of its most relevant applications. Connections to the archaeological field are also discussed. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
