Micropasts, the Mary Rose and HMS Hood

The bell of HMS HoodYou may remember last year we worked with Micropasts to produce a 3D model of the Mary Rose’s bell. This year, we’re working with them and the null to produce models of the bell of HMS Hood, which was conserved by Mary Rose Archaeological Services.


Chiara Bonnachi of Micropasts and Alastair Miles of the Mary Rose Trust have written about the work that’s being done, which you can read on the Micropasts blog

What we want you to do

We would like people to draw a polygon around the object that they see in each photograph in order to identify its outline and exclude the image background. This allows the 3D modelling process to concentrate on the object itself and ignore irrelevant background information.   There are two versions of the bell; pre-conservation, and post-conservation.
