The Department of Audio and Visual Arts takes part in the BYZART project.


The project aims to make digital objects accessible online through Europeana Collections. During the project photos, video and audio content, as well as 3D surveys and reconstructions about Byzantine history and culture will be digitised. The content and accompanying narratives will capture users’ attention and provide them with a rich online experience. In addition, the digitised data will enhance Europeana’s artistic content by adding to the Byzantine art and archaeology material already available on the platform.

The Byzantine art and archaeology project is led by the BYZART consortium.
