Profs Beeby and Gameson examine Utrecht Psalter via laser scanner

Prof. A. Beeby granted access to the Utrecht Psalter for special research

Durham University researchers Prof. Andrew Beeby and Prof. Richard Gameson have built two scanners that allow them to scan manuscripts under different light frequencies. They paid a visit to Special Collections to scan medieval manuscripts from the collection. The famous ninth-century manuscript from Reims, the Utrecht Psalter was taken out of the safe especially for them.

Beeby and Gameson spent three days in the library, researching several manuscripts. You can read more about their research here: The Utrecht Psalter taken out of the safe for special research .
