Parchment Assessment of the Codex Sinaiticus
Gavin Moorhead
May 2009


This assessment category records evidence of various circumstances that often result in a visible change to the surface of the skin (see fig. 8). Collectively referred to as scar tissue, these features usually occur in the aftermath of injury, infestation or abnormal skin condition. The most common scar is where an injury or wound has caused the skin to break and the repair process is made without the body being able to re-create healthy skin or tissue. In its place the body puts together new connective tissue fibres that are not as functional as the original skin and which serve as a protective barrier until healing is complete.
