3D Imaging in Archaeology - public talk

(18 May 2018)

As part of the Dig Deeper talks, David Errickson, Teesside University will talk about how the use of 3D imaging in heritage and archaeology has helped visualise data in a novel and informative way. This talk discusses the recent advancement in 3D technology with particular examples including animals from London Zoo, the gladiators of York, and forensic and archaeological skeletons. The event is free of charge and will take place on Wednesday, 30 May at 1pm in the Learning Centre at Palace Green Library. Booking is not required but seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

This technological approach is echoed by the projects of some community based archaeology groups who are recording the excavation process and in academia with the study of human remains. Likewise, with the increasing use of social media this information is becoming widely available for the general public to view.
