This chapter discusses the tomographic analysis of the Daka calvaria. It presents observations made on distortion, subcortical structures, and endocranial features through the use of computed tomographic (CT) imagery of the Daka calvaria. The chapter provides descriptions of individual cranial vaults bones and of the endocast, and presents cranial metrics and vault thicknesses, which were derived from micro-CT data.

Keywords: Daka calvaria; computed tomographic imagery; CT; cranial metrics; vault thicknesses; micro-CT
