We are pleased to announce the appointment of Gareth Beale as the Centre for Digital Heritage's new Research Fellow. Gareth has Masters qualifications in archaeological computing from the Universities of Gothenburg and Southampton. He stayed in Southampton for his doctoral research on the application of 3D computer graphics and digital recording to analyse and produce hypothetical visualisations of Roman polychrome statuary from Herculaneum. He was data management consultant for the Portus project, researcher for the JISC Datapool project, and is the project coordinator for a Southampton University pilot on online postgraduate training materials in the humanities. He is currently Co-Director of the Basing House Community Archaeology & Technology project and Co-Director of the Re-Reading the British Memorial Project.

Gareth will take up his new post on 25 November and will be based in the Centre for Digital Heritage office in the Humanities Research Centre.
