The Art of Making in Antiquity is an academic project designed for the study of Roman stoneworking.

Centred on the photographic archive of Peter Rockwell, this website aims to enhance current understanding of the carving process and to investigate the relationship between the surviving objects, the method and sequence of their production and the people who made them.

The resource comprises around 2,000 images, largely Roman monuments with a selection of contextual sources, accompanied by analysis of the working practices underlying their making.

The Art of Making Ontology
We developed an OWL ontology that models concepts and relations useful for describing the world of sculpture. Current version: first draft of the main taxonomy, no properties.

Role:   System analysis and design; data architecture; data entry environment.
