The methods of proton induced X-rays and gamma-rays (PIXE, PIGE) will be used to determine the chemical composition of the craft-products in the early New Age: glass and selected objects of non-ferrous metals. The measurements of glass, already performed for the city of Ljubljana, will be extended to the territory of the entire Slovenia. Statistical methods will be used to find out the properties of characteristic groups. The results will will be compared to the results of the stylistic analyses and the data from the written sources, and thus - combining results of humanistic and natural sciences - the general data about home production and trade routes will be determined.
