The Uist Archaeology Project’s Uist Unearthed app has been shortlisted twice in the Council for British Archaeology’s Archaeological Achievement Awards 2022.
The augmented reality app competes in the Public Dissemination or Presentation Award and the Archaeological Innovation Award categories.
The mobile app that brings Uist archaeological sites to life is up against stiff competition.
In the Public Dissemination or Presentation Award category, Uist Unearthed is vying for the top spot against Cissbury Goes Digital, The World of Stonehenge, Scotland Digs 2022, and Transforming The Roman Town House for wider audiences to enjoy.
In the Archaeological Innovation Award, the mobile app is up against Automated site discovery using deep learning, Crafting the past: shared histories, and The Seaford Head Project.
The Uist Archaeology Project is a joint initiative of UHI Outer Hebrides and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.
The awards ceremony will be hosted by Ireland’s National Monuments Service in partnership with the Office of Public Works. It will be held in Dublin Castle on Tuesday November 29.
