Prehistoric artwork uncovered on Stonehenge - Spatial Source

Prehistoric artwork uncovered on Stonehenge - Spatial Source | Cultural Heritage Experience Design | Scoop.it
The world-famous Stonehenge has been laser scanned in unprecedented detail, revealing 71 carvings of Bronze Age axes not seen in more than three thousand years.
Bernadette Flynn's insight:

This raises some interesting questions for the role of laser scanning - not only for reconstruction but for identifying previously unseen markings not visible to the human eye at site. The use of human scale visualisation and magnification used in dialogue to reveal the marks of human presence fron the past.

QRator

QRator | Cultural Heritage Experience Design | Scoop.it

QRator is a collaborative project between the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities (UCLDH), UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), and UCL Museums and Collections, to develop new kinds of content, co-curated by the public, museum curators, and academic researchers, to enhance museum interpretation, community engagement and establish new connections to museum exhibit content. QRator enables members of the public to type in their thoughts and interpretation of museum objects and click ‘send’. Their interpretation become part of the objects history and ultimately the display itself via the interactive label system to allow the display of comments and information directly next to the artefacts. The project is powered by Tales of Things technology developed at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, which has developed a method for cataloguing physical objects online which could make museums and galleries a more interactive experience. QRATOR takes the technology a step further bringing the opportunity to move the discussion of objects direct to the museum label and onto a digital collaborative interpretation label, users’ mobile phones, and online allowing the creation of a sustainable, world-leading model for two-way public interaction in museum spaces.

How can museums preserve our digital heritage? (Wired UK)

How can museums preserve our digital heritage? (Wired UK) | Cultural Heritage Experience Design | Scoop.it

Museum curators are experienced in exhibiting physical artefacts. But what about digital ones? How do you preserve and display a twitstorm? Or an online activist movement?

A History of the World

A History of the World | Cultural Heritage Experience Design | Scoop.it

“A History of the World” involved schools, museums and audiences across the UK. The website features all the objects added to the project during 2010 both by museums and individuals. At the heart of the project was the BBC Radio 4 series A History of the World in 100 Objects. One hundred 15-minute programmes, each focusing on an object from the British Museum’s collection, written and narrated by Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum. The programmes told a history of two million years of humanity through the objects we have made, starting with the earliest object in the museum’s collection. Inspired by the Radio 4 series, museums teamed up with the BBC in their area and selected over 1,000 objects from their own collections reflecting world history from their perspective.
