Round Table: ancient art and archaeology pedagogy and 3D printing

The Institute of Classical Studies and the Institute of Historical Research at SAS have recently set up a centre of expertise and research in 3D imaging and modelling, with a view to supporting research, teaching, experimentation and collaboration in the use of 3D technologies to study the material and artistic culture of past societies. This centre includes some basic 3D kit: software and high-performance desktops for scanning and modelling; two low- to mid-range 3D printers; virtual reality headsets and a “gaming” platform.

We invite teachers and lecturers of ancient art and archaeology to join us for an informal round table to discuss the potential of 3D technologies, especially 3D printing, to enhance the teaching of ancient art and archaeology. Options range from the creation of replicas for classroom handling or testing of variant reconstructions of fragmentary artefacts, to engaging students with the processes of designing and making, but we would like to hear your ideas and what might work for you.
