Let there be light: Mining lamps of the top class collection of Cornelis Raedts

By Miriam Paloni,Kevin Raetsen,Kirstin Römer

This project shows a selection of 3d digitized mining lamps from the top class collection of former mine director Cornelis Raedts, which was given to the Dutch Mining Museum on a long-term loan in 2022. Through 3D digitisation of the lamps, together with rich and engaging descriptions of the artifacts, we can make the public aware of the importance of mining in the Netherlands and the interesting history of mining lamps – both for those who want to know more before or after their visit to the museum, as well as for people who are not able to visit in person.
