Iron oxides

Geoarchaeology, Using Earth Sciences to Understand the Archaeological Record, published by Historic England in 2015, defines iron oxides as: ‘common earth surface compounds arising from weathering. Three widespread forms are lepidocrocite, goethite and haematite, which colour soils yellow, brown and red, respectively.’
