Talk: Visualising Antiquity in the Modern World

9 May 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free, Booking Required

Join Professor Michael Scott from the Warwick Department of Classics and Ancient History as he examines how such visualisations can enable both scholars and the wider public to contextualise the ancient past, its place in the present and thus its role as a guide to the future…

About Professor Michael Scott
Professor Michael Scott, alongside his academic work focus on the ancient Mediterranean, has over the last decade, make over 15 documentaries for UK, US and Australian TV.

In his latest BBC2 series ‘Invisible Cities’, he has worked with a team of 3D laser scanners to record millimetre perfect visualisations of difficult to reach and unknown ancient locations.

In this keynote lecture, he shows how these visualisation techniques in TV documentaries have developed in recent years; the potential they provide for visualising particularly ancient civilisations and relating them to the modern world; the roles such visualisations are coming to play in the language of TV programme-making; and the future potential applications of such visualisation technology.
