Laser beams meet timber beams
On Monday 21 March, some curious symbols and devices appeared in the Spon Street area.
A group of PhD students from the University of Warwick were engaged in laser scanning the medieval buildings of Spon Street. The team was led by Mark Webb from the Department of Archaeology, University of Leicester and Alan Chalmers, Professor of Visualisation at the International Digital Laboratory, University of Warwick.
Together the team will use the scans to create a virtual reality, multi-sensory model of late medieval Spon Street. We were very excited that The Weaver’s House was to be included in the project!
It will take many weeks for all the scans to be meshed together but we have been given a preview of how the scans will start to take shape.
We’re really excited to see the project progress to its next stage and will hopefully be able to bring more news on it soon!
