    Digital heritage technologies are radically changing the way we engage with material culture and are negotiating new ways of knowing and understanding the object. Realising the importance of digital technologies and new interdisciplinary possibilities, the E-curator project has been undertaken by UCL Museums and Collections with the goal of applying two state of the art digital technologies: 3D colour laser scanning and e-Science technologies. This project captures and shares very large three-dimensional scans and detailed datasets about museum artefacts in a secure computing environment. This paper presents our investigation about the use of 3D colour scanning for museum object assessment.
