Bressingham Roll – Initial Results

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.

The end-on single slice view of Bressingham roll shows both the parchment and evidence of ink very clearly.

This was imaged at 30kV with a 200um Al filter and post-processing with in-house developed beam hardening correction software.
