Organised by the Institute of Conservation Archaeology and Science Groups. This seminar is the ideal opportunity to learn about new imaging techniques used for archaeological artefacts

Amongst others, computed radiography, laser scanning and 3-D printing are becoming more accessible and as a result are increasingly being used by the heritage sector. But what are the advantages and the limitations? How do they work and how much do they cost?

This two day event will cover a number of imaging techniques, feature case studies and give you the chance to see some of the equipment in action. You can even bring an object along and try it out on some of the equipment. The event will include a workshop on how to make a proposal to use the instruments at ISIS, Diamond, and other large-scale facilities.
