Software could reconstruct medieval mosaics

Project to conserve Coventry’s 5,000 stained-glass fragments—some believed to be the work of a master

Experimental software developed to reassemble Cold War documents may soon shed light on the mysteries surrounding around 5,000 medieval stained-glass fragments from Coventry Cathedral, as well as on the work of John Thornton, one of England’s greatest stained-glass artists. The British arm of the World Monuments Fund is funding a project to prevent the glass from deteriorating.
