Abstract
The FT-Raman spectra of human bones and teeth in archaeological specimens dating to the 4th and 10th centuries AD from Romano-British and Anglo-Saxon burial sites in the U.K. have been recorded successfully using microscopic and remote sensing techniques. The samples exhibit fluorescence ascribed to mineral absorption from the grave soils but, nevertheless, good quality spectra are obtained. The versatility of the technique for non destructive sampling is demonstrated.
