Abstract

High Resolution X-Ray Computed Tomography (HRXCT) offers a powerful 3-dimensional, non-destructive and non-invasive diagnostic tool for imaging the external and internal structures of a range of specimens of interest including archaeobotanical remains. HRXCT offers new possibilities in terms of the research questions which may be asked of fragile and valuable archaeological and specifically archaeobotanical material. This technology, although currently somewhat limited in terms of time and access to beamtimes at National Synchrotrons, requires simple, non-destructive preparation of samples and produces exciting results. Based upon two rounds of successful work we believe that this new methodology has wider implications and utility for advancing the field of imaging, and investigating aspects of plant domestication such as internal anatomical changes.
