The Bridges Collection

Through a Glass Darkly - Digitisation of the Bridges Collection (a collection of Cypriot antiquities held at the University of St Andrews). Funded by the Leventis Foundation. Project directors: Rebecca Sweetman (School of Classics) & Alison Hadfield (MUSA). Through a Glass Darkly is a project involving colleagues in the School of Classics (Rebecca Sweetman and Ioannis Georganas) and the Museum of the University of St Andrews, MUSA (Alison Hafield and Hannah Sycamore) which stems from research into changing perceptions material culture according to the medium in which it is experienced. From this research project we have designed a number of practical applications which have been rolled out to help inform museum curatorial decision making processes as well as support education in schools and museums. Our work is funded by the Leventis Foundation and the University of St Andrews.
