The talk will describe a couple of projects that aim to recreate ‘historic’ Wolverhampton as a 3d model, focusing on sources of information, the software/game engine used, and various outputs generated.

SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES
Eleanor Ramsay
After studying Ancient History and Archaeology at Birmingham University, Eleanor spent a decade as a field archaeologist, then moved sideways into academia, learning and using Geographic Information Systems and 3D modelling for landscape analysis and visualisations. Eleanor completed an MPhil using GIS, databases and historic documents to map 19th century Dudley.

Working for the ‘Visualisation and Spatial Technology Centre’ research group within the Archaeology Department of Birmingham University, projects included mapping the submerged North Sea landscape of Doggerland, and analysis of the Mesolithic pit alignment at Craithes Castle.

Following the closure of the Archaeology Department in 2013, Eleanor applied for a job at Wolverhampton Council, and the 3D modelling and visualisation continued as a hobby – evolving and improving, and using information from my new role as Wolverhampton’s Planning Archaeologist as inspiration
