Virtual Etruria

Built by Josiah Wedgwood I, Etruria was the main Wedgwood factory from 1769-1950. Only one building remains on the site today - which was the location for Stoke's National Garden Festival in 1986. Virtual Etruria is a fascinating 3D digital reconstruction of the Wedgwood factory around 1900, with contemporary archive film footage of people at work accessed from the virtual buildings where the actual films were made. The reconstruction was undertaken by postgraduate students at Staffordshire University based on original plans and archive photographs in the Wedgwood Museum's collections.
