Thanks to the generosity of several trusts, foundations and members of the public the Staffordshire Hoard conservation team have purchased a state of the art microscope for their work.
The Hoard Conservation Team at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated towards the fundraising of the Keyence 3D digital microscope. The purchase of this essential piece of kit was funded through the generosity of several trusts & foundations who have supported the conservation programme and from public donations given by visitors at BMAG.
The Keyence 3D digital microscope will not only help the Conservation Team with their work in Birmingham and Stoke but it will also benefit the Curators, and Researchers who may wish to view the surfaces in more detail.
There is a short video blog showing the equipment in use. Some of the features of the microscope include:
The images and videos produced will also allow us to share our findings with the public via the website and the displays in the galleries.
