Making the invisible visible: the potential of X-radiography as an investigative technique for textile conservation decision-making

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

X-radiography is an established non-destructive analytical technique in many areas of conservation practice, which is rarely applied to the investigation of ancient and historic textiles. This paper presents research into the potential of X-radiography as a tool for the characterization, condition assessment, study and conservation decision making of such textiles, as well as enabling greater public understanding of textiles and its use in enabling greater public understanding of them. Techniques appropriate for the X-radiography of textiles, including the use of digital image manipulation, are outlined.
