Abstract

This paper focuses on recent archaeometric investigations conducted with the neutron imaging station DINGO at ANSTO. The synergic application of non-invasive scientific analytical methods is becoming a common practice in archaeometry and conservation science. Neutron tomography is playing a significant role in expanding the technical limits and investigation capabilities of traditional analytical methods. We discuss advantages and limitations of the technique through the discussion of results obtained from the investigation of artefacts produced by different ancient cultures.
