Yes, it has been a while. The first one I made was rather painful - learning new software always is. It seems the instructions are made for people who already have skills - which I didn't. So much of...

lenses/camera obscura

I am glad Bart found the article and that it is now posted as an "article" on ancients.info. I see where a lot of talking points for discussions on Moneta-L came from.

Hi Zee,

You need to request some reproductions of Calabrian coins from Nick at NT ancients.
