Introducing the “Award Winning” Kieran Baxter

Last week Kieran and I travelled down to London to attend the AHRC Research in Film Awards which was hosted at the BAFTA Theatre in Piccadilly where Kieran’s Caterthuns film won in the Doctoral Award category. It was brilliant to see Kieran win his category, especially since the Caterthuns were up against some stunning competition. Naturally immediately after making his […]

A Foray into 3D Printing

Now and again a project comes up that challenges me to explore a new technique or technology for the first time. One such job came across my desk recently which I thought was certainly worth a wee blog post. Earlier this summer I completed work preparing a number of Egyptian canopic jars from Luxor to be 3D printed. The project […]

Really excited to share a film Baxter and I have been working on over the course of the past year with Dig Ventures and English Heritage. Brendon at Dig Ventures approached us last year with a challenge, should we choose to accept it – using drone footage captured by Adam Stanford (Aerial Cam) and an earlier reconstruction […]

As most of you know, in the year or so since I finished my PhD I’ve set myself up to operate freelance and have been working on a wide range of […]

Open Archaeology Journal – New Paper

In between jetting off to Sweden, New Zealand and the USA (hope to get permissions to write a post about what I was up to soon…) over the past month or two I published a paper in the De Gruyter Open Archaeology journal. The journal is open access which is great because it’s peer reviewed and freely available […]

The Monumental Collective

As many of you will know if you read the blog regularly, since the Digital Dwelling fieldwork I’ve continued to work on a number of collaborative projects and endeavors with Aaron Watson, Kieran Baxter and John Was. So I’m excited to share that in addition to my own projects I am now also working with Monumental, a creative heritage interpretation […]
