Arch-I-Scan Project

Automated recording and machine learning for collating Roman ceramic tablewares and investigating eating and drinking practices

Led by Professor Penelope Allison (School of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester) and Professor Ivan Tyukin (School of Mathematics and Actuarial Science, University of Leicester), this project is developing a state-of-the-art image-recognition and machine-learning service to automatically identify and record Roman pottery vessels and sherds.
