*Article Publication*- An exploration of potential raw materials for prehistoric pottery production in the Tao River Valley, Gansu Province, China.

Northwest China is known for its Majiayao-style Neolithic painted pottery which has received much praise for its high level of craftsmanship, yet its chain of production, in particular the step of raw material selection, is still poorly understood. To fill this lacuna, the present study explores the raw materials used in producing these wares from a geological and technological perspective.
