About this display

How do we see the past?

Plates, Prints & Pixels explores the intersection where art and science collide. It reveals how transformative new technologies have allowed us to look at 17th- and 18th-century printing plates in unprecedented detail, and led to exciting discoveries.

Showcasing a collaboration between ARCHiOx and the Department of Engineering Science, this display reveals that there is more to libraries than books and manuscripts, and demonstrates the importance of partnerships between the humanities and sciences to fully understanding cultural heritage objects.
