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 […]

Leiston Abbey: Digging and Drones with Dig Ventures

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 […]

Grand Challenges for Digital Archaeology

As part of the Blogging Archaeology Carnival run by Doug Rocks-Macqueen over at Doug’s Archaeology I’ve been invited to write a wee blog post addressing the theme of “Grand Challenges” for archaeology. As luck would have it I wrote a paper last year addressing the same topic in the context of challenging digital archaeology, so I […]

Broadlands Farm: Gaming and an Interactive Archive

Right guys – it’s official, after a wee hiatus this year (have been unbelievably busy, all exciting stuff of course) I’m returning to blogging with full force! 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 […]

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 […]

Would You Like to Read My PhD Thesis?

Of course you would! If anyone is interested my PhD thesis and accompanying folio material are now available on the Glasgow School of Art’s RADAR archive which you can access HERE…

Back to Westray…Then Back Again

Just returning from another fantastic week of fieldwork with the visualisation team (aka the usual suspects Aaron and Kieran). 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 […]

Viva Success!

Just a very quick post now that I’ve had time to let it sink in/recover from the celebrations – I passed my viva on Tuesday and pending minor corrections will officially be Dr. Watterson! Hurray!!
