Orkney and the HBC
Throughout the summer of 2021 our 3DVisLab collaborated with the Stromness Museum on a project to design a new digital resource for the museum which would be both online and installed on a touchscreen in the exhibition. Our aim was to explore around 80 objects in their collections relating to Orkney’s history with the Hudson’s […]
Challenge the Past Conference, Gothenburg
Really excited to be speaking at the Challenge the Past Diversify the Future conference in Gothenburg next week. I’m giving a paper entitled “Beyond Digital Dwelling: Practice-Based Engagements for Interpretive Visualisation in Archaeology” where I’ll be talking about the work we’ve been doing since the Digital Dwelling film, building upon what we learned and further developing […]
Green Screens, Hillforts and Drawing with a Pencil
Since I finished my PhD and started to work freelance full-time back in the summer I’ve worked on quite a mix of jobs though for obvious reasons I’m not always able to share the production process or final outputs online right away, if at all. However, I’m still a keen blogger and this month as it happens there […]

Coprolites, Midges and Gale-Force Winds – Digging the Dream!
Now, don’t let the title of this blog post fool you because my return to the Links of Noltland for three weeks of digging last month were an absolute blast! I’d meant to write a post about the dig much sooner than this but unfortunately a combination of hardly having been in Glasgow since my […]
Back to Westray…Then Back Again

We were back up on Westray continuing to compile a visual and audio record of the Links of Noltland site and ongoing excavations (our work is kindly grant supported by Historic Scotland). Kieran took the reigns this […]

The workshop will run at 11am and 2.30pm on the Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd March, running for around 2 and a half hours each. The workshop blurb reads: “Learn about […]
Mesolithic Man: A Weekend Spent Eyebrow-Wrangling
For a little while now every so often I’ll take an afternoon or (if I really get into the zone) a weekend to spend some time working on small projects I’ve set for myself to practice and improve my skills in particular areas of my CGI work. Often when I’m working on reconstruction projects I […]
Vote for Links of Noltland in Current Archaeology!
The Links of Noltland has been nominated for the Current Archaeology 2014 awards as “Rescue Dig of the Year”, exciting! You can cast your votes HERE… It would be great to see Noltland win the category – not only because I’m currently involved in visualisation work for the site – but because it’s significance to the understanding of Neolithic […]
