York Heritage Seminar Series: Digital Dwelling at Skara Brae

Tuesday 29 January 2013 5.30pm, we will be live-streaming the York Heritage Seminar Series in the archaeological computing lab (room 3043) in the Archaeology building (65a, Avenue Campus) at the University of Southampton. Participants to this event will be able to ask questions to the speaker remotely.

This talk will discuss a collaborative project between three visualisation specialists (Watterson, Watson and Baxter) each with very different methods and mediums of working. An area under-explored in archaeological practice at present is the partnership between traditional approaches to survey and site interpretation and more creative, subjective and experiential approaches. This project demonstrates the value of visualisation as a process of discovery by combining data collection with dwelling in the context of the late Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae in Orkney.

Alice is a PhD researcher at the Glasgow School of Art. Her research concerns the process by which archaeological visualisations are formulated, from the interrogation of the archaeological record through to the production of images and animations, considering issues surrounding engagement, experience and integrity.

The seminar will be live-streamed at Youtube and on Google+
