Abstract

This project explores mixed-media as an archaeological field method through the act of making an experimental film at the Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae. A mixed-media approach has the potential to capture and communicate very different qualities of the archaeological record to systematic and objective techniques of data collection alone. The process of gathering and converging diverse media, from laser scans to watercolour painting, enables experiential and creative responses to the past.
