English Heritage: Laser Scanning for Heritage This document has been generated as part of the Heritage3D project. Heritage3D is sponsored by English Heritage’s National Heritage Protection Commissions programme (projects 3789 MAIN and 5496 MAIN) and undertaken by the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Newcastle University. The project has sought to provide guidance to archaeologists, local planning authorities, instrument manufacturers and software developers on the use of 3D laser scanning in the conservation of cultural heritage. The primary aims of this project were to develop and support best practice in laser scanning for archaeology and architecture, and to disseminate this best practice to users, along with the education of likely beneficiaries.

London Early Years Foundation 2012 National Business Awards Winner The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) has been revealed as a 2012 National Business Awards in partnership with Orange winner.
