Artefacts

Palaeolithic Hand-Axe from St Acheul, Germany

Back in 2009 I illustrated over 50 palaeolithic hand-axes for publication on location in Halle, East Germany. It was a tough week of 18 hour days, but I learnt so much from my brilliant lithics mentor Farina Sternke.

In 2010 I completed my first ever 3D artefact reconstruction, a ‘speculative’ sword from the Staffordshire Hoard. The sword was reconstructed from pieces of the hoard, and partially influenced by the form and aesthetics of the Sutton Hoo sword.

Most recently I’ve been doing a little artefact illustration for the Glasgow Archaeology Department.

Late Roman Amphora (LR1) , 6th century AD, from Rhynie, Aberdeenshire.

Even more recently I did some close range scanning and modelling of the Forteviot church bell (See related post here).
