Abstract

Twelve large mammal bones, associated with underwater archaeological excavations on four shipwrecks on the Western Australia coast, were analysed by Micro-CT Scan (Skyscan 1176). They all belong to the collections of the Shipwrecks Museum, a section of the Western Australian Museum in Fremantle, Western Australia.

The aim is the investigation of any physical modifications linked to underwater taphonomy and diagenesis of bone.
