Digital Revolution


After 18 months work, Digital Revolution is finally here. An exhibition of digital art, design, film, music, websites CD-ROMs and video games that I was lucky enough to contribute to. My role was to tell the history of digital culture in 100 creative projects starting from 1970, the year before the first microprocessor emerged (Intel’s C4004). However,  it was important to acknowledge the pioneering work of the 50′s and 60′s that sowed the seeds of the […]

Blogging For Historians


When you read a blog post about History what are you looking for?  If you own a blog do you write posts about historical topics?  Why do you do this?  What do you get out of it?  These are all things that are of interest for the Blogging for Historians project.  The project examines the purpose behind blogging either as an individual or as an intuition for academic purposes.  It looks at ideas about best […]

Lights Camera Action

Taplow House, a housing block within the notorious Aylesbury estate, southeast London, named after Taeppa’s Low, a 7th Century Anglo-Saxon burial mound 29 miles west along the River Thames, this 1960’s housing development, famous for the Channel 4 ident, the one where the camera pans across desolate concrete walkways. The regeneration is underway, a project that will see Taplow House disappear in 2024. On the mezzanine level one faces northwards across the Old Kent Road […]

Annotating RTI data in 3d and 2d


I’ve been talking to a lot people in recent months about annotation frameworks for RTI and today’s introduction to the #rodeimagingevent (see Hembo’s blog post) has crystalised some of these. I was talking to @kathrynpiquette about annotation and I also tweeted a query to @iipimage about it. @portableant suggested annotorious (something that I know our current MSc student Vassilis Valergas has been examining) and also openCanvas was suggested. Also @aboutgeo mentioned the freeform extension to annotorious developed by […]

Papyrus RTI case study


The Derveni tombs discovered in 1962 close to Thessaloniki in North Greece are considered one of the most significant archaeological sites in northern Greece because of their numerous rich grave offerings and their important location in the ancient Mygdonian city of Lete, on the pass of Via Egnatia. The cemetery comprises seven graves, and according to the excavation publication dates to 320–290 BC. One of the most remarkable finds of the Derveni Tombs is a […]

The “summit” was focused on the teaching of Digital Humanities, with a view to the HEA gaining a sense of the current issues and priorities in teaching and learning. This will in turn inform further HEA policy and recommendations. As part of the event we were […]

Modelling Complexity


A Fractal Flame Complexity has become a new paradigm in the hard sciences in the 90s and since then it has been slowly dripping into the social sciences and humanities. It works on the premises that many systems are complex in structure, i.e. their numerous individual parts interact with each other in a non-linear way producing phenomena which cannot be easily predicted solely on the basis of their characteristics. Think of the brain: if you […]
