Reflectance Transformation Imaging of Inscriptions: a workshop at the Manchester Museum; Wednesday 21st September, 10am – 4pm.
Dr George Bevan and Prof Daryn Lehoux (Queen’s University, Canada) will lead a workshop demonstrating the use of ‘reflectance transformation imaging’* in the study of inscribed objects (on metal and stone). The aim of the day is both to provide a general introduction to the technique and its potential, and to provide opportunities for hands-on practice (using material from the collections of the Manchester Museum).
There is no charge for the workshop and all are very welcome, but places are limited: please contact Peter Liddel (email@example.com) if you would like to attend (or if you would like any more information).
