Integrated Survey for Community Engagement

Wessex Archaeology and the Churches Conservation Trust have undertaken a joint project to assess the value of combined digital survey to engage local communities in heritage assets.

The project was carried out at the Old Church of St Nicholas, Uphill, a site not often open to the public, during the Heritage Open Days 2015. The aim was to carry out archaeological investigation using a combination of laser scanning, Total Station Survey, Reflectance Transformation Imaging, excavation and geophysics to inform the CCT about the building, but also to encourage local volunteers to participate in the survey and be trained in survey and excavation techniques. Processing of the raw data was carried out on site allowing the volunteers to see the products of their work and a selection of this work formed an exhibition on the final open day.

Paul Baggaley and Damien Campbell Green will be at Digital Past to discuss the project and whether such an approach can lead to sustained engagement.
