Artifact Imaging

The paleoimaging techniques described in this text have a natural application in the imaging of non-biological cultural artifacts. Section III, Artifact Analysis, of Paleoimaging: Field Applications for Cultural Remains and Artifacts demonstrates how multimodal imaging can assist nondestructive data collection in an archaeological context. Imaging applications to help discover such variables as ceramic construction and technology complexity, orientation and composition of grave goods, temporal context based on artifact analysis, differentiation between authentic and fraudulent artifacts, and imaging works of art for conservation purposes are described.
