The Heritage Together project

The Heritage Together project is looking for help to photograph ancient monuments in Wales to create an archive of 3D models.

The sites of interest are particularly standing stones and burial cairns, foremostly in the Gwynedd area, but also beyond. See the project website and map for details and how to register.

The project is funded under the Humanities Research Council’s ‘Connected Communities’ call. It is a collaboration between the schools of Computer Science at Bangor University and Aberystwyth University, and schools of Archaeology at Bangor University and Manchester Metropolitan University and Gwynedd Archaeological Trust.

As well as submitting photographs there are also a number of events that may be of interest to LAS members.

7 June – A fieldwork day on the Llyn recording a neolithic site with a community archaeology group.

14 June & 26 July – Open days with Cadw at Barclodiad
and at Bryn Celli Ddu with tours and opportunity to record rock art.

16 July – A photogrammetry processing workshop as part of the Festival of British Archaeology.

If anyone is interested in taking part see the project website or contact Dr Seren Griffiths of Manchester Metropolitan University S.Griffiths@mmu.ac.uk. Please also let one of the LAS committee know if you get involved. It would be great to highlight any work by members of the LAS for the Heritage Together project on our website.
