Picturing Archaeology

This course was a chance to learn about recognising and recording archaeology in Invergordon, Tain and Alness in February and March 2013, using some traditional and some more modern techniques.

Each day the workshops were divided into two parts. In the morning we got out and about walking from our meeting spot to look at some archaeology in the area, with plenty of time to stop and admire the archaeology. On site we had a go at recognising and recording features, taking photographs and drawing, before returning to base.

After a break for lunch we got stuck into some research and brought our site to life. We looked at the best places to get information and shared some tips on sniffing out the facts. Participants also used photos taken by the group in the morning to make a 3D digital model. Using free photosynth software we  also ‘geo-referenced’ or place our model on the map for others to enjoy.






Participants will be charged £3 for the whole day and refreshments will be provided during the afternoon session. Please bring sturdy footwear and waterproofs. Lunch is not provided so you may wish to bring a packed lunch.
