ManuSciences is a week-long intensive course in manuscript studies

material sciences, digital humanities and computer science.

making and analysis of papyrus, parchment and paper, DNA and C14
analysis, and TEI for Palaeography and Codicology. They will also have
hands-on sessions in which they will make their own inks and writing
samples and then analyse these samples or other images with techniques
and equipment including multispectral imaging, X-Ray Fluorescence
(XRF) Microscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, and computational manuscript
The summer school will take place at the Côte d'Azur on 10-15 March,
