There is renewed interest in using advanced techniques to characterize ancient Roman concrete. In the present work, samples were drilled from the "Hospitium" in Pompeii and were analyzed by synchrotron microtomography (uCT) and neutron radiography to study how the microstructure, including the presence of induced cracks, affects their water adsorption...
