Abstract:
In comparison to conventional computed tomography (CT) and radiography, high-resolution CT is a superior means of visualizing and quantifying fine structures in a wide range of materials. Here the shape and size of a chert arrowhead lodged in a 700-year-old tibia from North America are identified, as are the bony response and the arrow's probable trajectory through the bone. The use of high-resolution CT -- in this instance, to identify structures down to the level of individual trabeculae -- can be used in other archaeological applications when fine details are important and specimens cannot be damaged by invasive (i.e., destructive) procedures.
