Classics and history in 3D: lunchtime workshop

22 November, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Take a tour of the Temple of Isis in Pompeii, without leaving London. The new Classics and History 3D Lab at Senate House is exploring how 3D imaging, modelling, printing, and Virtual Reality (VR) can inform modern research. In this interactive workshop, you are invited to come and learn about what is going on in the lab and share your ideas and questions about how you would like to see these methods used in teaching, research and public events. Come and play with scanned and 3D printed artefacts, and take a stroll through the Temple of Isis on a VR headset (without fear of Isis’ wrath).

This event comprises a talk and opportunity to handle 3D printed objects and play with some technology. No prior knowledge of Classics or ancient history required. Come and say hello!

If you have a smart phone, bring it along to help you engage with the VR headsets.
