Enhanced backscattering of light is used to detect microarchitectural changes in human archeological bones. Measurements on tibia cortical and trabecular tissue demonstrate the high sensitivity of the cone width and enhancement factor to the different morphologies. The approach allows to unveil the presence of periostitic lesions, thus addressing its feasibility for anthropological studies.
