New 3D Imaging Looks Inside Ancient Artifacts

Bible and archaeology news

Using the latest in neutron imaging technology, researchers are now able to “look inside” artifacts to uncover new information about their manufacture, construction and use. Neutron imaging, which produces something like a three-dimensional x-ray, allows scholars to better understand the compositional makeup of artifacts and also provides insights into their manufacture. What is more, researchers can obtain this data without having to extract physical samples from the object. “There currently exist a vast array of archaeological objects and research questions about ancient and historical technological development that can now be posed,” said lead researcher Krysta Ryzewski of Wayne State University. “[Neutron imaging] has offered us an invaluable alternative for performing non-destructive, non-invasive analysis.”
