Mr Nigel Steel


Under the Uplands is digitising the archive from Victoria Cave and creating a digital museum, a' museum in your pocket'. This will enable users to read original excavation manuscripts and examine artefacts (in 3D) from the comfort of your armchair. The project aims to hold workshops for cavers and instruct them in the specialist field of photogrammetry. We will hold regular meetings to discuss all matters cave archaeology related and provide a digital tool kit, which will enable cavers to proceed proactively when they find archaeology underground.
