The Archaeological Computing Research Group has been awarded an Arts and Humanities Research Council Collaborative Doctoral Award.

This will fund a three year doctorate analysing Roman polychrome statues, with a particular emphasis on the reconstruction and computer-based visualisation of examples recovered from Herculaneum. The doctorate is based around an ongoing interdisciplinary project drawing on colleagues from archaeology, conservation, art history, computer science and engineering, and a pilot study carried out in 2008. It is the first AHRC CDA to be funded with an international partner - the International Centre for the Study of Herculaneum. The ICSH is a partnership between the Soprintendenza Archeologica di Pompei , the Comune di Ercolano, and the British School at Rome .
