Soon after the Bressingham Scroll arrived, we performed a quick test CT scan to determine the settings needed so we could image both the parchment and any ink on it.
A single slice of the scan is shown here, the ink shows up as brighter patches on the whirls of the parchment.
This was imaged at 30kV with a 200um Al filter and post-processing with in-house developed beam hardening correction software.
We then used Drishti volume exploration software to see if we could read any of the text we know exists in the roll. Initial results are promising.
The writing in in Latin and in cursive script, not immediately readable to the untrained eye. We hope to have much better results to show soon.
