SeeWorthy: Modeling Maritime Archaeology

April 1 - June 5

W-Th (10-6), F-Sat (11-5), Sun (1-6)
On view in the
Torpedo Factory Art Center Grand Hall and Studio #9

 

View ship construction through the eyes of maritime archaeologists in SeeWorthy, a new exhibit presented by the Alexandria Archaeology Museum  highlighting the technology used to digitally reconstruct historic vessels.  Recent development along the waterfront has led to significant discoveries by archaeologists, including the remains of four historic ships. These remnants have been laser scanned to create models showing what they would have looked like in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

 

View 3D models of three of the historic vessels from the Robinson Landing Site in the new SeeWorthy exhibit and find out how archaeologists use digital and physical models to compare ship construction and to answer questions about the age and use of the vessels.
