Brent Seales lectures at Baylor

TECHNOLOGY WATCH: Professor speaks on preserving past using technology (Rachel Leland, Baylor Lariat).
Computer Science and Papyrology, the study of ancient texts written on papyrus, may not appear to intersect, but digital imaging technology offers benefits and collaboration opportunities for researchers in both fields.

Baylor University hosted researcher Dr. Brent Seales who gave a lecture called “Digital Unwrapping: Homer, Herculaneum and the Scroll from Ein Gedi.”

Past posts on Dr. Seales's work on the Herculaneum papyri are here and links (related post here). Past post on the recovery of the text from that carbonized Leviticus scroll are here, here, here, here, and here.
