Description

MicroPasts: Crowd & community fuelled archaeological research

This seminar, given by Daniel Pett (ICT Advisor at the British Museum), will focus on the AHRC funded MicroPasts project, a collaboration between the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, the British Museum and the public. This project had 3 strands of research, crowdsourcing, crowdfunding and 3D. Two aspects were extremely successful, one was not.

The MicroPasts project has looked at a wide range of periods, topics and institutions, working with the Petrie Museum, Mary Rose Museum and British Museum collections for instance, to produce open data, open source software and an open attitude. A demonstration of what can be achieved by a small team, using open source technology to work in tandem with an amazing contributing crowd will be made, with illustration provided by various 3D prints and models.
