Summary

Advances in Paleoimaging: Applications for Paleoanthropology, Bioarchaeology, Forensics, and Cultural Artefacts builds on the research and advances in technology since the writing of the editors’ first book Paleoimaging: Field Applications for Cultural Remains and Artifacts (ISBN: 9781420090710). Numerous additional applications have been identified for which the advancing imaging technology has been utilized since Paleoimaging’s publication. Practices are far more wide-spread, standardized, and accepted and the capabilities for the utilization of the technology has increased dramatically.

Given the numerous advances in paleoimaging technique and technology, the book chronicles the the evolution that has taken place in all the imaging modalities. Chapters include coverage of magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, plane and digital radiography, applications of x-ray fluorescence, as well as the principles of industrial radiography. While the book focuses on a multimodal imaging approach to anthropological and archaeological research, the authors and contributing authors have had vast experience in other areas to present coverage of biological applications as well.

The multidisciplinary chapters provide a foundation to understand the application of various imaging modalities in archaeological, anthropological, bioanthropological, and forensic settings. As such, Advances in Paleoimaging will serves as an essential reference for conservators, museum archivists, forensic anthropologists, paleopathologists, archaeologists, a perform non-destructive research on historical or culturally significant artifacts, remains, or in the context of a forensic investigation.
