Abstract

The use of neutron tomography for archaeometric purposes is quite a new technique. The property of neutron to transmit easily large, dense samples is of great importance in modern archaeology. The three-dimensional visualisation of the inner structure of samples of archaeological interest helps to make suggestions about the technological process of manufacturing or reveals information about the origins of delivering of noble materials used in ancient masterpieces. Another application field in modern archaeology is the non-destructive inspection of the quality of specimen conservation where the neutron tomography allows visualization of impregnation solutions in wood or metal matrices. The high sensibility of neutrons to hydrogen makes it possible to detect organic remains in fossils. All of these advantages make the neutron tomography a unique technique for non-destructive investigation in archaeological sciences.
