Second day data

Thursday was the second day of scanning and photography (pictures of the scanning work can be found here). On Wednesday, we finished the top 1.5 metres or so of the cross from the 2 metre lift. On Thursday morning, the team from Solway construction came and removed the top level of scaffolding and we scanned and photographed the next metre or so (roughly equivalent to the Magdalen panel on the South face). After lunch the team from Solway came back and removed the rest of scaffolding and we began working on the lower half of the cross from the church floor and pit. Read More

Some preliminary results

The results of the first day’s scanning are starting to come in. Some amazing photography and the first preliminary 3D point clouds to check we were getting it all. Hopefully we’ll be able to post some screen shots tonight or tomorrow (see below for some comments on the video)

This evening we went back after dark to redo the even light photography and some heavily raked shots (The link takes you to a couple of reduced examples). Some of the panels and the runes look like they are really popping out. Very interesting photography and a real benefit of being able to get up so close. Read More

First day scanning

We’re about to start the first day scanning.

Yesterday the scaffolding went up (pictures available from our flikr account), and Matteo, Marco, Roberto, and I went up for a quick recce. First finding: there’s some pencil annotations on the top of the cross piece. The top was too dusty to read them reliably yet, but hopefully we’ll know more in a few hours. Read More

Plans roaring ahead for Visionary Cross scanning

The preparation is coming together for the scanning of the Ruthwell Cross… and it involves some skills they never taught me in gradschool!

Thanks to Paul Beaton of Historic Scotland and Anne Baxter of the University of Lethbridge, I’ve had a crash course in project and site management and what it means to be working above the ground at an archaeological site. I have to do some height and fall training with our physical plant (fortunately, there’s a scaffold I can train on behind the water building), and then renew my first aid with St. John’s ambulance. Hard hats, first aid kits, steel toed shoes… we’re not in the manuscript library any more!
