CEMEC Connecting Early Medieval European Collections

Connecting Early Medieval European Collections (CEMEC) is an EU-funded cooperation project that aims to create a collaborative network, and a cost-effective business model, between eight European museum collections and six technical partners.

Drawing on objects from participating museum collections, the project will produce ‘CROSSROADS’, a travelling exhibition focusing on connectivity and cultural exchange during the Early Middle Ages (300 -1000) in Europe. The CEMEC project includes the development of a Mobile Panoramic Project System (MPPS), which will enable museum and online visitors to explore the rich cultural history and diversity of Early Medieval Europe.

MPPS will connect to a database of 3D scanned objects, allowing users to take a closer look at objects in the exhibition and to learn more about the collections and history from their devices at home.
