The Virtual Curation Laboratory at VCU partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Legacy Program to develop a digital data project that incorporates the use of a three-dimensional object scanner in recording American Indian and historic artifacts for analysis and conservation.
The Virtual Curation Laboratory developed methodology for 3D digital data collection and virtual artifact curation that will be applicable for a wide range of archaeological objects. By utilizing this ability to scan and produce 3D images of artifacts, the Virtual Curation Laboratory has created an extensive virtual catalog of American Indian and historic artifacts.
