Abstract: The elemental analysis of materials and objects on the basis of neutron resonance capture by nuclei as a function of neutron energy is briefly explained. The feasibility of neutron resonance capture analysis (NRCA) is demonstrated with five prehistoric ¿bronze¿ axes of different kinds and complex elemental compositions. Attention is paid to the occurrence of indium as a trace element in these artefacts.
