The Society of Antiquaries of London is keen to bring together early-career researchers in the field of historic building recording to see how the latest methods of digital recording, laser-scanning and photogrammetry can be used effectively with other historic sources, including the study of original design and survey drawings, topographical views, documentary material, and the results of archaeological investigation. What are the models of ‘best practice’ in this field? The aim is a sharing of knowledge among leading and recently qualified practitioners.By ‘early-career’ researcher the Society means those within eight years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or within about six years of their first academic appointment.

Please submit a proposal (up to 250 words) for a paper of 30 minutes in length that describes a recent or current project of historic building recording. As well as standing fabric, subjects can include monumental sculpture, garden structures, below-ground remains and architectural models.

Travel and other expenses of up to £100 are paid to each presenter.
Proposals to be submitted by 15 May 2020 to: The Society’s Communications Manager at [email protected]

Conference will be held at the Society of Antiquaries, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J OBE Friday 23 October 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
