About Me: Frank Fitzpatrick

I am currently a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader at Huddersfield University. As part of my research  into digital sculpting tools for archaeological and historical illustration and remediation, this blog will act as a forum and showcase for ongoing investigation and related topics.

I am part of the University’s School of Art, Design and Architecture and based at the University Campus Oldham where we deliver the BA(Hons) Digital Arts Practice course. My interest in digital sculpting stems from the development of our Games Art programme. With 10 years industry experience as a graphic designer and a subsequent 14+ years teaching  in digital 2D apps and workflows for Multimedia Design,  a more recent wish to explore 3D space has resulted in a profound change in my teaching interests and a real passion for investigating tools and workflows that could play a part in archaeological and historical illustration and remediation.


Sir John Neville 3rd Baron Raby  (Taken from http://www.luminarium.org/encyclopedia/houseofneville.htm)

John, the 3rd baron (d. 1388), a warden of the Scottish marches and lieutenant of Aquitaine, a follower of John of Gaunt and a famous soldier in the French wars of Edward III, continued the policy of strengthening the family’s position by marriage; his sisters and daughters became the wives of great northern lords; his first wife was a Percy, and his second Lord Latimer’s heiress; and his younger son, Thomas, became Lord Furnival in right of his wife, while his son by his second wife became Lord Latimer. His eldest son Ralph (1364-1425), 1st Earl of Westmorland, carried the policy further, marrying for his second wife a daughter of John of Gaunt and securing heiresses for five of his sons, four of the younger ones becoming peers, while a fifth, Robert, was made Bishop of Durham (1438-1457). Among his daughters were the Duchesses of Norfolk, Buckingham and York (Cicely Neville, mother of Edward IV and Richard III) and an Abbess of Barking. The Neville’s were thus closely connected with the houses of Lancaster and York, and had themselves become the most important family in the realm. Of the earl’s sons by his second marriage, Richard, Earl of Salisbury (and three of his sons) and William, Earl of Kent, are the subjects of separate notices
