Abstract

The application of X-radiography in ceramic studies is becoming an increasingly valued method. Using the potential of industrial X-ray computed tomography (CT) for non-destructive testing as an archaeometric or archaeological method in pottery studies, especially regarding aspects such as manufacturing techniques or pottery abrics, requires controlled data-acquisition and post-processing by scientific computing adjusted to archaeological issues. The first results of this evaluation project show that, despite the difficulties inherent in CT technology, considerable information can be extracted for pottery analysis. The application of surface morphology reconstructions and volumetric measurements based on CT data will open a new field in future non-invasive archaeology.
