ACCORD with the Kirkcudbright History Society

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.

This archive contains the outputs from the eighth co-production project. The ACCORD team worked with The Kirkcudbright History Society on the 4th and 5th of October 2014. Together in the Kirkcudbright Kirkyard we modelled and recorded the inscriptions of two grave monuments using photogrammetry and the technique of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI).The three grave monuments included one dedicated to the traveller Billy Marshall who died in 1792; an 18th Century gravestone with one face completely occupied by raised lettering; and an ornate tablestone grave dedicated to Samuel Herries who died in 1793.
