Contents of bamboo drums reconstructed non-destructively

For the first time, a team of researchers from Berlin is reconstructing the contents of 40 unopened bamboo corsets and 6 crates from the Tendaguru expeditions (1909-1913) using a non-destructive imaging technique (Computed Tomography). The data is relevant to paleontological research and conservation, but also particularly with respect to the colonial context of the material.
