Building a Virtual Bridge Connecting Indian Himalayan Archaeology with a Virginia University and the World
The Virtual Curation Laboratory at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond, Virginia, and the Archaeology Department of Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna (HNB) Garhwal University, in Garhwal (Srinagar), India, have partnered to create three-dimensional (3D) models of artifacts and sculptures from the trans-Himalayan region of northern India. Many of these items are on display in the HNB Garhwal University Museum of Himalayan Archaeology and Ethnography. This partnership seeks to preserve these items, make them more widely available to researchers, and raise public awareness of the cultural heritage of the state of Uttarakhand. VCU students are drawing on 3D printing to create an exhibit that showcases this heritage to their fellow students and faculty.
