Towards a reading of the Vindolanda stylus tablets: Engineering Science and the papyrologist

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    We introduce a collaborative project between the Department of Engineering Science and the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents at the University of Oxfordregarding the analysis and reading of the Vindolanda Stylus Tablets. We sketch the imaging and image processing techniques used to digitally capture and analyse the tablets, the development of the image analysis tools to aid papyrologists in the transcription of the texts, and lessons that can be learned so far from such an interdisciplinary project.
