We present a lecture undertaken as part of the Essex Cultural Diversity Project organised Festival of Thetford & Punjab, marking the 125th anniversary of the death of Duleep Singh, the last Maharajah of the Punjab.

Fascinating journey through the rich relics of the Sikh Empire, from the court of Maharajah Ranjit Singh through to the artefacts of his progeny including Maharajah Duleep Singh. The lecture highlights how new technologies can be used to showcase relics through 3D modelling, 3D printing and augmented reality. You will also find out more about the world’s first Sikh Online Museum funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

He has recently curated the successful exhibition: Anglo Sikh Wars: Battles, Treaties and Relics (2016-2017) at Newarke Houses Museum, Leicester and was featured on the BBC show Celebrity Antiques Roadtrip.

Taranjit Singh is a 3D developer at Taran3d and has undertaken many technological projects related to 3D printing and augmented reality, as well as working with many museums across the UK.
