Bridges Collection

The Bridges collection held by the University of St Andrews has been the subject of two projects, which explored different methods for producing 3D models of selected objects.  The objects in the collection are of Cypriot origin,  from various times including Bronze age, Iron Age and Byzantine periods.

Sixteen 3D models are in a collection on Sketchfab: https://sketchfab.com/bridges The three below are my favourites, because the diagonal and diamond designs can be reproduced easily in tablet weaving. This doesn’t mean that tablet weaving was used in Cyprus in those time periods, just that inspiration can come from any source!
