Scanning History

Digitising Vindolanda

Ever wanted to reach behind the glass displays and hold the skulls for yourself?

Find out about some research that normally goes on behind the scenes at Vindolanda. Rhys Williams from Teesside University will be at Vindolanda displaying 3D models and prints. Learn why it is important and how it helps us further understand the Romans at Vindolanda.

Get hands on with an interactive display of target practice, and see the 3D scanning and printing in action.

Check out some of Rhys' 3D models here and come along and find out how they are made.
