IV. Anglo Sikh Virtual Museum

The Sikh Museum Initiative has created an exciting project that brings objects like swords, jewellery and other material objects to life through 3D technologies. The site showcases 3D models, events, and news related to the project. There has been a long history linking the Sikhs to the British since the 18th century. Since their history is relatively unknown,this is an initiative to bring closer introspection and investigation. As a result, the Sikh Museum Initiative will focus on locating and uncovering relics and documents which binds the two communities together. This national programme will leave a lasting legacy for future generations so that second-generation Sikhs will understand the link between the two.
