Digital Dwelling at Skara Brae is a collaborative project which brings together three visualisation specialists, each with very different methods and mediums of working.

The project was initiated following a series of discussions between Alice Watterson, Kieran Baxter and Aaron Watson, having established a mutual concern for the way digital methods were shaping the ways archaeologists engage with sites and material culture.

An area under-explored in archaeological practice at present is the partnership between traditional approaches to survey and site interpretation and more creative, subjective and experiential approaches. Our film is an experiment in layering multiple approaches, mediums and interpretations.

This project was supported by Historic Scotland and undertaken as part of Watterson's PhD research at the Glasgow School of Art between 2010-2014.
