Imaging @ Allard Pierson Museum – Amsterdam

Allard Pierson

Early March 2013 a three and a half day imaging session recorded the cuneiform documents kept at the Allard Pieson Museum in Amsterdam. In total 59 clay tablets, cones, ornaments and some seals were processed. We sincerely thank director Wim Hupperetz for the smooth collaboration.

In the sideline we also scanned an early Medieval book bound and some miniature illustrations from the Bijzondere Collecties. One of these scans of some 9th c. pages from the court of Charles the Bald hit the news media.
