Towards the Digital Squeeze: 3-D imaging of inscriptions and curse tablets

Ryan Baumann (University of Kentucky)

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2008

Friday 18th July at 16:30, in room STB9 (Stewart House), Senate House, Malet Street, London

*Note room change*

Creating records of inscriptions often serves multiple purposes, such as aiding interpretation, preservation, or dissemination. Traditionally, squeezes, sketches, and photographs have been the methods by which these representations have been made. This talk will explore the possibilities for epigraphic study offered by non-contact 3D digitization, which enables the ability to capture, distribute, and visualize the full geometric properties of an inscription.


The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
