Our School of Archaeological Sciences is actively involved in many high-profile research projects. The ENTRANS project is a €1M project HERA and European Commission funded project to support work from 2013-2016.
A team of Bradford researchers has recently conducted 3D scanning of Iron Age art from museums in Slovenia and Croatia. Among the most spectacular objects is the bronze vessel known as the Vače situla which dates to around 500 BC. This iconic object is decorated with vivid and elaborate scenes of processions, feasting and ritual combat, reflecting the ideology of the Iron Age aristocracy in south-east Europe. The new digital models will be used for both the display and analysis of the objects. The work was carried out as part of the ENTRANS Project (‘Encounter and Transformations in Iron Age Europe’) in collaboration with Bradford Visualisation.
