The Friends of Herculaneum Society is pleased to sponsor a lecture by
Dr Kathryn E. Piquette, Research Associate, Universität 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:
***@classics.ox.ac.uk.

An illustrated pdf with examples of the RTI technique is available here:
