Recovery of writings on ancient ostraca – Heritage Inspection

Recovery of writings on ancient ostraca – Heritage Inspection

This week VideometerLab has been moved to the museum library on the greek island of Rhodes for heritage inspection. We are imaging ostraca which are pieces of ancient pottery with writings. 

The ostraca are from the Hellenistic period around 2nd century BC, and spectral imaging is used to enhance the contrast of those ostraca, that are most difficult to read.
