Who is L3DB6H?
Hi, my name is Lloyd Bosworth and I’m an archaeologist. My professional interests cover 3D modelling and visualisation, landscape survey, with a particular expertise in geophysical surveying, GIS, archaeological photography and illustration.
For fun, I build and then crash radio controlled planes and helicopters. I also torture a 5-string banjo when there are no witnesses around. Dog walking also figures highly on my list of out of work activities.
I’m currently working as the archaeology technician for the Classical & Archaeological Studies department at the University of Kent. This is usually a very clean job, unless I’m dashing about a field with some piece of geophysics kit, where I become very sweaty and can often be heard swearing amongst the various beeping sounds.
I’m also currently undertaking doctoral study looking at how emerging digital technologies, such as 3D modelling, virtual reality, and 3D printing, are being deployed within the traditional museum setting. The research is based upon a qualitative exploration, through experiment, of user experience when interacting with both new and traditional display technologies. With a greater understanding of how the user experience compares between the two, the museum curator can more effectively deploy digital technologies to enhance the educational value of their collection.
