    DescriptionThe clay tablets with cuneiform writing from the museum in Raqqa in northern Syria have been destroyed or plundered. But a lot of valuable information can be saved by making 3D scans and prints of moulds that were made before the war. Dominique Ngan Tillard, geo-engineer at TU Delft, often works with archaeologists. She uses micro CT scans to create images of the insides of objects. And now she can try to do the same with the Syrian clay tablets.
