Join us on Wednesday 8th of November for our monthly talk by Lee Robert McStein, on ‘Recording and Conserving Travellers’ Graffiti’.

Lee Robert McStein is a 3D scanning and production specialist and has produced hundreds of 3D scans of artefacts and sites, both in the UK and Egypt. Highlights of recent work include the reproduction of a colossal pharaonic statue fragment in the Ashmolean Museum, as well as photogrammetry recording and digital reconstructions for the excavation of Lathom Castle in Lancashire.

Lee is technical director of Monument Men, a not-for-profit organisation based in the North West of England which provides 3D scanning and reproduction services and training to museums, archaeologists and heritage sites. Lee’s primary interests include photogrammetry and 3D printing and its potential for conservation and reproduction in cultural heritage environments, and the conservation and recording of travellers graffiti at Ancient Egyptian sites.
