Reconstructing Kildalton Chapel: a project with Archaeovision and Islay Heritage

Back in Springtime this year Kieran and I made the trip over to Islay on the west coast of Scotland to conduct a site visit and photogrammetry survey of Kildalton Chapel on behalf of Archaeovision, themselves commissioned by Islay Heritage. Archaeovision were tasked with producing an interactive virtual model of the site representing it both in the current day (enter Kieran and his drone) and a speculative reconstruction (enter yours truly).


A screen-grab from the interior reconstruction produced in collaboration with Archaeovision – you can explore the model for yourselves on the Islay Heritage website.

For the reconstruction I worked closely with Dr James Miles (Archaeovision) and the seemingly bottomless wisdom of Professor Richard Fawcett. James has written a great  post about the project on the Archaeovision website which you can read here.

You can explore the photogrammetry and reconstructed interior and exterior of the chapel on the Islay Heritage Website, have fun!
