Last weekend we were in gorgeous Glendaruel, on the Cowal Peninsula. Together we are working with members of the Colintraive and Glendaruel Development Trust to co-design and co-produce 3D models of archaeological monuments in their landscape; a stunning valley and community owned forest peppered with neolithic chambered tombs, potential ancient standing stones, neolithic rock-art, medieval and post-medieval remains. On the Saturday our colleagues from Archaeology Scotland ran a workshop in the field on recording monuments and plane-table survey (did you know you can build 3D models using this very technique?).
Despite the mist and constant rain we all got stuck in (and had a few laughs!), while Danuta’s soup, mugs of tea and cakes back at the village hall were greatly appreciated and warmed us all up!
Here is a quickly thrown together model of one of the ‘standing stones’ I made over the weekend, a little blurry because of the rain!
– I am excited to see what we create together… follow this blog to hear more from the group and watch our progress!
