A microCT protocol for the visualisation and identification of domesticated plant remains within pottery sherds

Barron, Aleese; Denham, Timothy


In tropical, arid and semi-arid environments, archaeobotanical preservation is often relatively poor and, his-torically, archaeobotanical extraction techniques have been inconsistently applied. As a result, the surface im-pressions of plants in organic-tempered pottery sherds have been relied upon to explore questions of past human-plant relationships, including domestication.
