As some of you would be aware by now I have an interest in the use of technology in teaching, history and archaeology. In 2013 Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by English Heritage to revisit an 18th Century Dutch Shipwreck and update the survey. In the process they took the opportunity to try out a new technique called photogrammetry to create 3D models of parts of the site. Photogrammetry is essentially the science of making measurements from photographs and feeding the data into a computational model to create a 3D image.
