Digital Archaeology and Heritage Lab (DAH Lab)
The Digital Archaeology and Heritage Lab is a teaching and research space in the King's Manor in the Department of Archaeology at the University of York. In previous lives this room has been G/60, the home to Shergar the horse skeleton, the pub at King's Manor, and has been called the wine cellar of King Henry VIII, which is probably inaccurate. It is the ideal space to experiment with virtual reality, photogrammetry, photography, video games, RTI, and other technologies to investigate and disseminate archaeology and heritage data.
Members embrace hi-tech and low-tech approaches to bringing the past alive. Student projects include board games, reconstructing castles, landscapes, villages, and artefacts, immersive worlds, interfaces for museums, 3D printed artefacts and more.
No, this infrastructure does not provide funding.
