Ancient Textual Imaging Group: New Multispectral Images online

The Ancient Textual Imaging Group at Brigham Young University is pleased to draw Papy-L readers’ attention to a collection of multispectral images of damaged papyrological texts. The papyri and ostraka are owned by Columbia University, The University of California’s Center for the Tebtunis Papyri, and the University of Michigan. A generous grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities (PW-50427-09) made the work possible.

The multispectral images of texts — over 400 discreet texts, counting rectos and versos — are fully accessible on the internet through the landing page at Brigham Young Univesity’s Harold B. Lee Library: http://lib.byu.edu/sites/scholarsarchive/college-of-humanities/byu-multi-spectral-imaging-project/
 Any questions about the collection may be directed to Roger Macfarlane at atig@byu.edu.
