The dataset contains data collected as part of the Ancient Adhesives project under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme Grant Agreement No. 678 804151 (Grant holder G.H.J.L.). 

It is being made public to act as supplementary data for a publication and for other researchers to use this data in their own work.

The data in this dataset were collected at TUDelft, University of Cantabria, and Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology of Cantabria in 2023.

This dataset contains:

  1. Raw data for SEM-EDX of 10 archaeological objects named: MOR2; MOR4; MOR9; MOR12; MOR13; MOR17; MOR22; MOR35; MOR42; MOR50. The file format is .pdf
  2. Raw data for micro-Raman of 5 archaeological objects named MOR2; MOR4; MOR9; MOR13; MOR22. The file format is .csv 
  3. Raw data for ATR-FTIR of 7 archaeological objects and 1 sediment sample named: MOR11; MOR38; MOR40a; MOR43; MOR44; MOR46; MOR47; MORSediment. The file format is .csv
  4. Raw data for GC-MS of 23 archaeological objects (including sub-samples) and 2 sediment samples named: 230404 MOR 1.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 5.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 14.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 24.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 26.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 28.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 32.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 43.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 49.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 57.1.sirslt; 230404 MOR 58.1.sirslt; 230421 MOR 5a.s.sirslt; 230421 MOR 11.1.sirslt; 230421 MOR 40a.3.sirslt; 230421 MOR 45.1.sirslt; 230421 MOR 47.2.sirslt; 230421 MOR 61.1.sirslt; 230421 MOR62.2.sirslt; 20220718 MOR25_1.sirslt; 20220718 MOR25_2.sirslt; 20220718 MOR38_1.sirslt; 20220718 MOR38_2.sirslt; 20220718 MOR40a_1.sirslt; 20220718 MOR40a_2.sirslt; 20220718 MOR47_1.sirslt; 20230316 MOR_41.1.sirslt; 20230316 MOR_44.1.sirslt; 20230316 MOR_46.1.sirslt; 20230316 MOR_60.1.sirslt; 20231024_MOR_SED 10.sirslt. Each.sirslt file contains the files necessary to open and manipulate the data using the original software Agilent OpenLab 2.5. Within each file there is a .DX file (for opening with Agilent OpenLab 2.5) and accompanying .ACAML, .DX, .MFX, .BIN, .RX, .PMX, and .AMX files. In addition, a .xlsx file (Morin GC-MS results.xlsx) is provided. Each sheet contains the complete GC-MS data exported for samples analyzed as well as the MS data and automated molecular data against the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library.

The acronym MOR stands for Morín Cave, a cave in Cantabria (Spain) where the objects were found. 

The data included in this dataset has been organized per method. For each specimen, more than one point was measured as indicated in the file name. Only the measurements with interpretable results are made available.  

The file name includes the unique ID of the object + the analytical technique + the number of the scan. For example: MOR11_ATR_loc1
