Sunoikisis Digital Approaches to Cultural Heritage: 3D imaging in museum research

Description

Gabriel Bodard (U of London), Daniel O'Flynn (British Museum), Dan Pett (Cambridge) 

 In this session we present some of the methods for 3D scanning and imaging that are used in museums and other heritage institutions and projects. We discuss some concrete case studies from the British Museum science department and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and think about the research, conservation, access, engagement and other benefits of using and sharing advanced imaging of archaeological and heritage objects. We briefly introduce the technique of photogrammetry—production of a 3D model from multiple 2D photographs—and suggest an exercise for viewers to create their own model using this method.
