Abstract

A Raman microprobe was employed to try to find and identify mineralogical geothermometric markers in an untreated raw sample of part of the wall of an ancient vitrified fort. The results are compared with those for Libyan Desert Glass which reveals a remarkably similar very high-temperature petrological association: glass + α-cristobalite.
