The Data

The data listed here includes captured and processed data from the imaging and analyses of the Mummy cartonnage and surrogates during the Arcadia funded Mummy Cartonnage Imaging Project, from our different imaging modalities (Multispectral imaging, Optical Coherence Tomography, Terahertz imaging, X-ray fluorescence, Phase contrast x-ray, and X-ray microCT). This data is hosted by UCL Research Data Storage for public access and use. All images are licensed for use under Creative Commons 0 1.0 Universal License.

This data set comprises a core content set of digital images, analytical data and technical reports on the imaging and analysis of mummy mask cartonnage and modern surrogates. These are intended for access by researchers, scholars, students and the general public. The data set contains the following folders organized by imaging method:
