Guided tours from April to October

RTI – First Volunteer Session

SWACS made a start on capturing the Court Cave carvings as part of our Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) project.  The weather was kind to us and volunteers came from St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow to learn about this powerful photographic technique and to help out with both the data capture and the processing.  Our aim is to record all the carvings in the Wemyss Caves and eventually we will be able to incorporate the data into our online visualization.  It’s enormously important to maintain a record of the carvings so that their condition can be properly monitored.  The equipment we’re using was purchased with a grant from Awards For All Scotland – we’re extremely grateful for their support.

If you’d like to get involved with this project then please email Sue on information about future sessions.We welcome people of all ages, though minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Also, please note, there is walking involved, possibly climbing steps and crossing uneven terrain, so you’ll need sensible shoes and appropriate clothing.  You don’t need to know anything in advance about RTI as we will provide full training.
