Material Culture

We conduct research and provide training on digital approaches to material culture and cultural heritage, utilising 3D methodologies including imaging, scanning, modelling and printing.

Staff in the Hub have an active interest in material culture, including work doing 3D imaging and modelling of artefacts from the Hellenic and Roman Library’s Ehrenberg Collection of classical ceramics and other objects, using photogrammetry to create an educational and engagement resource to be available alongside this handling and teaching collection. There is a gallery on Sketchfab and 3D prints for use in events.
