"As it stands right now there are a number of issues and service delivery challenges for managers looking to embed 3D features permanently into their museum services.  Useable 3D technology exists in one form or another now, that can do amazing things that can be used to build great services, but some care is needed to scope this work."

Recreated WPA lab celebrates Angel Mounds' 'Golden Age'

Recreated WPA lab celebrates Angel Mounds' 'Golden Age' | Preservation Archaeology | Scoop.it

When the Indiana Historical Society bought the 480 acres of farmland at the heart of what is now Angel Mounds State Historic Site in 1938, few people might have imagined what it would become.

The next five years would see the land worked like never before as hundreds of men employed by the federal Works Progress Administration dug into its mounds and fields in search of archaeological treasure.

Angel Mounds was the site of a walled city built by Native Americans of the Mississippian Culture, a network of mound-building Native Americans living throughout the Southeastern United States. It is believed to have been occupied from about A.D. 1100 to 1450.

Digital Dwelling at Skara Brae : Archaeology News from Past Horizons | Preservation Archaeology | Scoop.it

Digital Dwelling at Skara Brae is a collaborative project bringing together three visualisation specialists, each with very diverse methods and mediums of working. The project was initiated following a series of discussions between PhD researchers Alice Watterson and Kieran Baxter together with Dr Aaron Watson, which established a mutual concern for the ways digital methods were shaping archaeologists’ engagement with sites and material culture.
