Archaeological News 2022

As a working student at the information design agency Science Communication Lab I get the chance to be a part of fascinating projects. Since 2016 my colleagues have been doing the layout for the annually published Archaeological News, a journal about the archaeological excavations and events in Schleswig-Holstein. The 2022 edition featured the story of the discovery and excavation of three historical shipwrecks on Süderoogsand, in the North Sea.

For this article my team decided to go a step further than just the printed journal and create a mobile website as an extension, to really get a feeling for the discovery.

Under supervision of the leading Archaeologist, Dr. Daniel Zwick, who supplied me with blueprints and helpful insight, I was tasked with modelling a 3D reconstruction of the excavated ship that was later used to create the interactive visualisation on the website.
