Summer School in 3D Imaging and Modelling for Classics and Cultural Heritage, 5-9 July 2021
Taught by Gabriel Bodard and Alicia Walsh
The ICS is offering a Summer School in 3D Imaging and Modelling for Classics and Cultural Heritage. This online course will introduce participants to a range of 3D technologies, from photogrammetry to 3D design software, for the imaging and modelling of ancient artefacts and buildings. We offer a mix of practical and theoretical sessions, including advice on imaging both portable objects and outdoor monuments. Drawing on the expertise of the Institute of Classical Studies and nearby museums, this course is suitable for students, archaeologists, teachers and anyone with an interest. No previous technical experience is required.
A reduced rate is available for anyone who is unwaged or unfunded.
For further details and to book please see here.
At the summer school we will host two keynote lecture that are open and free to the public, delivered via Zoom. Both lectures discuss 3D modelling in a research context, rather than giving highly technical detail or tuition. Everyone is warmly invited to sign up and join us.
Wednesday 7 July 2021, 5.00pm UK:
Valeria Vitale (Alan Turing Institute), Missing, incomplete, biased. Priceless. The key role of documentation in the representation of historical buildings, from drawings to 3D models.
Thursday 8 July 2021, 5.00pm UK:
Chiara Piccoli (University of Amsterdam), Visualizing and experiencing past cities in 3D: Methods, opportunities and challenges.
Both lectures are free but advance booking is essential.
