project: Carrlands: mediated manifestations of site-specific performance in the Ancholme valley, North Lincolnshire

The aim of Carrlands is to create a series of related site-specific musical and spoken-word performances over a period of twelve months, for three locations in the agricultural valley of the river Ancholme in North Lincolnshire . Such performances represent both an innovative mode of enquiry and a research output, within the field of Performance Studies. The soundworks are disseminated and publicly distributed in the form of streamed; free-to-listen; podcasts, initially available through specially designed, dedicated pages on the University of Wales, Aberystwyth website.

project: Technologies of Enchantment: Celtic Art in Southern Britain in the Middle and Late Iron Age

This project aims to investigate the artefacts found in Britain between about 300 BC and 150 AD which have come to be known as ‘Celtic Art’. The project seeks to understand why Celtic Art objects were made in the first place, how they were used and why they often seem to have been intentionally deposited in rivers or under the ground. The first task has been to compile a comprehensive database (in Excel, downloadable from the website) of all Celtic Art ever found in Britain. [read more]

CIDOC-CRM

I'm trying to get to grips with CIDOC-CRM for desribing 3D visualisations/recreations of lost architecture and the research sources on which the visualisations are based. I would be grateful for any links or comments relating to projects which have already used CIDOC-CRM in a similar ways, or any publications on this.

I'm still at the beginning of this project, so haven't done much research into this area yet - if people are interested I can post up my results as I go along...
