A golden fibula projects from a block
of earth which was recovered from
the NEL site near Bremen. To find
out if it contains more artifacts, the
archaeologists have taken it to an
industrial CT scanner. The resulting
3D scan shows the contents of the
block in detail and reveals 117 pieces
of gold, totaling 1.8 kg. A printed
model will help the conservator un-
cover and clean the treasure trove
named the Gessel Hoard.
