Based on their chemical composition ceramic shards from three Bronze Age sites in Transylvania, i.e., Copaceni, Dersida and Palatca respectively, were distinguished by major, trace, and RE elements. Within the Copaceni samples, two subgroups (A and B) showing different chemistry and mineralogy were additionally separated out. The link between chemistry and mineralogy showed clearly the important contribution of the temper to the overall chemistry of the ceramic shards. In turn, the chemistry facilitated the provenance study of the raw materials, which were collected in the vicinity of the sites. In combination with the mineralogy of the ceramics, the chemical analyses can serve as a basis for a geochemical reference set used by further studies.
