Abstract

Paleoradiology plays an important role in archeology since its first implementation soon after discovery of X-rays. Computed tomography (CT) as a paleoradiological tool in studies of ancient cremation urns is described only in few articles. Clinical magnetic resonance (MR) has never been used in studying ancient cremation remains. We report the use of ultrashort echo time (UTE) MR sequence to three cremation urns from the Bronze age from Croatia. MR overcame the problem of the similar densities between soil and bones on the CT and clearly showed superior contrast resolution.
