X-ray sub-micron tomography as a tool for the study of archaeological wood preserved through the corrosion of metal objects

Kristof Haneca UGent, Koen Deforce UGent, Matthieu Boone UGent, Denis Van Loo UGent, Manuel Dierick UGent, Joris Van Acker UGent and Jan Van den Bulcke UGent (2012) ARCHAEOMETRY. 54(5). p.893-905
abstract
Wood preserved in the corrosion layer of two early medieval iron objects was examined using X-ray tomography. A state-of-the art multi-resolution X-ray tomography set-up (http://www.ugct.ugent.be) provided virtual cross-sections of the archaeological wood samples at sub-micron resolution. These were compared with scans of samples of similar modern wood. These scans demonstrate the power of sub-micron X-ray tomography for wood identification, although the process of mineralization pushes this technique to its limits. Furthermore, this technique facilitated appraisal of the mineral content of the archaeological wood, which is useful in selecting the most appropriate strategy for the (preventative) conservation of the archaeological object.
