ALB-Historic England-SEAHA - Building Information Models from monitoring and simulation data in heritage buildings 01 Apr 2018
This project aims to develop a new Building Information Modelling (BIM) paradigm that supports the management and future-proofing of the built heritage. Research will focus in exploring the integration of types of information that are relevant for heritage science, and which are not part of current BIM practice. A building model capable of supporting heritage science should enable: the aggregation of material and historical data to aid interpretation, the exploration of the relationships between materials and environments and the use of this information to inform the decision making behind intervention and preventive conservation.
Cyber Security Postgraduate Bursaries Scheme 31 May 2018
This grant is being made available by DCMS as part of an initiative funded by the National Cyber Security Programme 2 (NCSP2). The grant is for the third year of the scheme seeking to facilitate and encourage more candidates into careers in cyber security by taking GCHQ certified masters course in cyber security.
The Rape of Hastings is an area within eastern Sussex located within the heavily wooded and undulating High Weald that includes 36 rural parishes and four towns. In terms of domestic architecture the study area is representative of the historical houses which survive over a large part of the counties of Kent and East and West Sussex. Collectively the surviving historic houses and farm buildings of the region form a nationally important concentration and make an important contribution to the areas distinctive character. The project involves the analysis, synthesis and publication of a large sample of domestic buildings of pre-1750 date within the Rape of Hastings. It is now entering its final phase and the project outputs comprise four stand-alone reports (rural houses, houses within the historic villages and houses within the towns of Battle and Hastings), a synthetic monograph that will characterise the nature of the rural, village and town houses through time and provide an overview of the entire historical domestic building stock in the study area and an integrated on-line database.
The AHP agreed between UCL and Historic England is meant to enhance historic environment education and training, research, and services by facilitating collaboration across the academic and public policy/practice communities. As such, it responds to several key issues facing the historic environment field.
ALB-Historic England-SEAHA - Canvas Painting 01 Apr 2018
Project undertaking comparison of painting lining methods for historic house environments
Elm is, after oak, the second most frequently found timber in historic buildings. Over the last few decades the dendrochronological dating of oak has become well established, with the dating of well over two-and-a-half thousand building phases now having been derived from tree-ring series. Elm is known to be more difficult to date, generally having fewer rings, even in relatively large timbers, and less even growth. It is generally more prone to insect degradation too. The complex genetic mix of elms has often led to it being described as the most variable tree amongst native species. Although often encountered, dendrochronologists have tended to shy away from attempting to date it therefore, not only because of these factors, but also as result of economic pressures, in that lower chances of success tend to mean that scarce resources are often directed elsewhere, rather than being put into an activity that is perceived to have a lower chance of a return. There have however been a few successes in the past, with elm being dated against oak sequences in the same structure, and in the case of an Essex farmhouse investigated in 2015, producing a site chronology that could be dated against oak chronologies with levels of agreement typically seen amongst oak chronologies themselves. In a similar way to the early development of oak dating in historic buildings, this project will adopt a targeted approach, identifying buildings in a selection of geographical areas that have the best potential for dating in terms of numbers of rings present, numbers of timbers available, and possibly also the presence of datable oak for direct growth comparison, therefore maximising the chances of success in building elm chronologies that may then be used as the springboard to a greater exploitation of elm dendrochronology in the future.
ALB-Historic England-Colouring London 01 Apr 2018
Colouring London is a web based Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) initiative, designed by the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, UCL, and created in collaboration with Historic England. It is being developed using building footprint data kindly provided by Ordnance Survey and facilitated by the Greater London Authority.
