The Access Archaeology group and ACCORD team hard at work capturing data in order to create a 3D model of the Grimsay Wheelhouse, North Uist, Western Isles.
ACCORD with the Access Archaeology Group in the Uists

ACCORD was an AHRC funded research project that took place from October 2013 to March 2015 and was a collaboration between the Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art, the University of Manchester, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland and Archaeology Scotland. In the summer of 2014 the ACCORD project worked together with communities across Scotland to co-design and co-produce 3-Dimensional digital models of heritage places and monuments. We explored how forms of community-based social value associated with sites and places can be addressed and transformed through engagement with 3D digital technologies. The project worked together with 10 community groups across Scotland that have ongoing relationships to heritage places.

Full project details including references to methodology are available from the main ACCORD programme pages.

The ACCORD team worked with the Access Archaeology Group based in the Uists from the 18th to 20th of August 2014. Together we recorded and modelled the Grimsay wheelhouse on North Uist, Western Isles. Additionally we modelled and recorded the remains of an Early Medieval chapel and a cross-slab at Howmore, South Uist. We used both the techniques of Reflectance Transformation Imaging and photogrammetry (for more information on these technologies please see the ACCORD project overview page).
