Two of our engineers were recently on the BBC's 'The One Show'. They scanned a Sarcophagus at Lincoln Castle and were also there at the time the sarcophagus was opened to see the body inside!

Archaeologists at Lincoln Castle found a coffin underground within the walls of a previously unknown church which is thought to date back more than 1000 years!

The stone coffin was found three metres underground when a hole was being dug for a lift shaft to be constructed. Before the lid was removed Central Scanning 3D scanned the exterior of the Sarcophagus and once the lid was lifted the inside too.

When the lid was taken off Central Scanning was first on hand to digitally record the findings thanks to the close range scanning capability of the Artec Eva. This allowed researchers to examine the burial in detail without risking the damage to the human remains or artefacts that remained. The excavation of the Sarcophagus at Lincoln castle was aired on TV on BBC The One Show where it shows our Engineers scanning.
