Digital Past 2010: Conference At National Museum Wales






Preparations for Digital Past 2010 are now in full swing. This years’ conference is being hosted by the National Museum Wales at its St Fagans site, near Cardiff. Papers, seminars and practical training sessions covering the latest technical survey and interpretation techniques are on offer to those working in the archaeology, museum and heritage interpretation sectors. To see a list of confirmed papers and seminars check the Events Diary on the Royal Commission website and to register for the conference visit the see3d website.

These 2 images are stills from the reconstruction animations created from the digital surveys of the Chirk and Pontcysyllte Aqueducts. The animations were built by Commission investigators and See3D to support the World Heritage Site status bid for the Llangollen Canal.

The videos below were made to accompany the Hidden Histories II TV series.

Preparations for this event are going really well - we have a fantastic line-up ready to talk about a wide range of topics covering all sorts of different aspects of heritage interpretation. This ranges from some quite in depth technical sessions on geo-physics, laser scanning and lidar, to the range of technologies now on offer to museum and education professionals for making archaeology more accessiable and interactive for the public. Registration has opened and spaces are filling up fast....
