LECTURE: K.E. Piquette, New Advanced Digital Imaging of the Herculaneum Papyri: Recent results, future plans.

The Friends of Herculaneum Society is pleased to sponsor a lecture 
by Dr Kathryn E. Piquette, Research Associate, 
Universit├Ąt of Cologne Centre for eHumanities, 
on Saturday 18 October 2014 at 16.00 in the main lecture theatre at The Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, 66 St. Giles, Oxford OX13LU. 

 The title of the talk is "New Advanced Digital Imaging of the Herculaneum Papyri: Recent results, future plans." Dr Piquette has been developing a technique known as RTI (Reflectance Transformation Imaging) to assist researchers to study documentary and other artefacts remotely (online) in great detail and without being restricted by the fixed lighting angles of traditional photography and flatbed scanning, where details can be obscured by shadows. In developing the RTI system, it is hoped that high-quality digital images of inscribed artifacts, viewable from multiple light sources, can be consulted by scholars and the general public around the world. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception. All are welcome but please rsvp if you intend coming to: [log in to unmask] An illustrated pdf with examples of the RTI technique is available here:
