EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA)

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA) is an 8-year initiative (2014-2022) to establish an infrastructure to meet challenges set by the heritage sector, industry and government.

Heritage presents complex cross-disciplinary scientific and engineering research questions, ideal for talented graduate students to address. Working with heritage and industry partners, SEAHA students create, innovate or use sensors, instrumentation, imaging, digital and creative technologies to improve our understanding of heritage, to develop science and engineering capabilities and to benefit the economy.

Let visitors do the science – Rosie Brigham’s research on citizen science data in Angewandte Chemie

SEAHA MRes student Rosie Brigham alongside her supervisors has demonstrated that heritage site visitors can use their smartphones to obtain good measurements of colour. The research, which measures the uncertainty of crowd-sourced measurements, has been published in Angewandte Chemie. Through this research, the quality of crowd-sourced measurements taken by visitors to historic sites has been quantified […]
