University of Cambridge. The Prehistoric Picture Project PITOTI: Digital Rock-Art, was honoured in the research and digitisation category for its work between 2009 and 2013. It is an ambitious project focusing on the 3D scanning of rock art in Valcamonica, a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Italian Alps. The project, led by Cambridge University with contributors from the Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici, St Pölten University of Applied Sciences and the Bauhaus University Weimar, uses film, photography, dance, animation, music, 3D printing and scanning technology to record and re-present these open-air rock carvings, not only preserving the prehistoric images for posterity, but bringing them to life with real depth. Dr Baker commented, "This European award is a reward for the whole of the European interdisciplinary team of archaeologists, engineers and artists that created this project." [...] EurekAlert!
