Roses on the web
20 February 2018
The winter period is clearly quieter than the summer. There is significantly less tourism, so more time for other things. As a result, there has been plenty of time for photography to bring our gigantic digitation project to completion. In December, the acquisitions from 2017 were photographed and loaded on the web. In January and February we worked on the final part: excavated pipes. Over two thousand pictures of clay pipes from the seventeenth century with a stamped heel mark have been added to our database. Especially the profound group of rose marks, with or without a crown and with or without initials, are surprising. Although the most important objects have been virtually presented for a long time, the lesser gods are now also available. The critical visitor can thus discover all sorts of new objects, but above all the search result now yields an even larger number of hits.
