St Michaels Graffiti Report Available

As you may well know we did a survey of all the graffiti in the Church, we’d originally aimed for the medieval but found much more. Version 1.0 of the report is now available to download (click here) – it might take a wile as it’s 99 pages!

    Dear Chris,
    Lovely set of graffiti! Have you heard of a photographic technique called Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI)? Here’s a website that explains some of it and shows a couple of examples:
    http://culturalheritageimaging.org/Technologies/RTI/
    It is particularly good for inscriptions on weathered surfaces. No special equipment is required: DSLR camera, flash, remote flash controller (so that the flash does not have to be attached to the camera), tripod, laptop, some free software and one or two bits and pieces (like string).
    Best regards,
    Jacqueline

      Many thanks for the suggestion, I think I had heard of something like that but will definitely check it out.
      Thanks
