Whether you are interested in visualising ancient monuments or in making and printing 3D models of historical artefacts—or even if you are just passionate about cultural heritage and want to learn more about the latest digital approaches—this online, intensive training course offers practical experience, with instruction from some of the world’s leaders in the field.

The course will introduce you to issues, methods and technologies in the 3D imaging and modelling of ancient artefacts and buildings. Through a hybrid mix of discussion and practical training, you will learn about imaging of heritage objects. You will have the opportunity to put into practice the method of photogrammetry, the production of a 3D model from multiple still photographs of an object. You will also gain experience with an easy-to-use 3D design tool, for creating reconstructions of lost historical buildings or monuments. Both sets of technologies will be presented within a theoretical and methodological framework, thinking about 3D modelling alongside best practice, preservation, ethical and legal issues.

Drawing on the expertise of the Institute of Classical Studies and nearby museums, this course is suitable for students, archaeologists, teachers and anyone else with an interest. We would love to hear if you had a project in mind that you would like to work towards, but all sessions will be accessible to complete beginners.
