Hyperspectral imaging from 400 to 940 nm of a genealogical roll that traces the ancestors of Edward IV back to Adam and Eve.


The roll is 5955 x 308 mm and is held by UCL Special Collections (MS ANGL 3). It is described in detail in Treasures From UCL (https://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/id/eprint/1468565/6/TREASURES_FROM_UCL.pdf).


The movie moves along the roll, showing the content changing with wavelength. Different inks can be seen highlighted as the wavelenght changes.
