Wessex Archaeology – Lost & Found
Wessex Archaeology approached us at Central Scanning to help realise their “Lost and Found” project. This project involved working with NHS Staff and at risk groups to improve wellbeing through engagement with heritage. Over several online webinars, they went into depth about some of their recent finds, got them to share stories of their own objects they have found, choose which items went into a ‘Digital Museum’ and learned about the technologies used in Heritage Preservation (including 3D scanning).
“My stand out moment on the course was seeing the process of digital scanning and understanding the impact this will have on making collections accessible to everyone”

Over several weeks and months different cohorts had chosen their favourite objects to go into the Digital Museum and they learned how these objects are 3D scanned with the Artec Space Spider supplied by Central Scanning.
The scans now sit proudly (digitally) in the digital museum the participants help curate: https://www.wessexarch.co.uk/museum-lost-and-found
