Imaging analysis of associated burial grave goods is crucial in data collection not only for the identification of the artifact but also for identifying the possible significance of its location within a wrapped or bundled set of human remains. For the purpose of this text, we will refer to the artifacts held within the remains or their wrappings as the "internal context." On-site paleoimaging analysis of internal context can best be accomplished using standard radiography and endoscopy, as these tools are better suited for portability and field applications. We present methods and data related to the paleoimaging of associated internal context artifacts.
