On the 13th of June 2013 a demo and trial session was organized at the Musée de Louvain-la-Neuve in regard to the imaging efforts of Mesopotamian heritage conducted by the IAP network (work package VI). IAP-partner UCLouvain keeps at their museum a small collection of a few dozen of cuneiform texts and some stamp & cylinder seals. This first visit with the Portable Light Dome (PLD) to the museum was organised to inspect the to image material and to demonstrate to the museum curator, photographer, employees and UCL researchers the potential the PLD technique. As such, we settled a complete week of recordings, scheduled for November 2013. In addition, not only cuneiform documents and seals will be scanned, but we plan to test the use of the PLD-technique on selected series of other epigraphic and archaeological objects safeguarded at the Musée de Louvain-la-Neuve.
We sincerely thank Emmanuelle Druart, Etienne Duyckaerts and Jan Tavernier for organizing this trial.
