From the Tangible to the Intangible: Virtual Curation of America’s Historic Past
Author(s): Bernard Means
Virtual curation of artifacts—the creation of intangible digital models from tangible artifacts—has clear benefits to opening up America’s historic past. Researchers and the general public anywhere in the world can access, manipulate, and share three-dimensional digital models that might otherwise be locked away behind display glass. This enhanced access will contribute to a broader reflexive archaeology and further archaeology as a tool for social engagement. This presentation will focus on the efforts of the Virtual Curation Laboratory to curate and digitally conserve historic objects from historic sites across eastern North America.
