Methodology for Recording 're-cycled' Tombstones - MBGRG (pdf file - 86Kb)
While working at Elgin Cathedral, it was discovered that some table-stones had apparently been 're-cycled', and previously never recorded inscriptions were to be found on the undersides of those stones.  This interesting find has already been described in more detail in the MBGRG Annual Report 2006-2007.
This brief report describes procedures recommended by the MBGRG, for recording such inscriptions, using mirrors, and image inversion software, and highlights important safety aspects of the procedure.
