Digital imaging technology can now produce detailed and trustworthy surrogates of historical documents. Leveraged by technological improvements in imaging and image processing, humanities scholars have been able to image, analyse, and recover more information from historical documents than was previously possible. , , Multispectral imaging has been utilised to examine the characteristics of documents by providing additional information about their physical properties and condition. , , However, current digitisation efforts have concentrated on recording documents in their current state. In this project we used multispectral imaging to record the process of macroscopic document degradation by imaging a parchment document before and after a series of degradation processes. This project is part of a larger effort to investigate the methodologies for acquiring and processing multispectral images of damaged cultural heritage documents
