We owe a great deal to earlier researchers in haptic applications to cultural heritage, art studies and practice. We would like to list past and current projects which may illuminate and help in shaping future research in this area. Please post a brief description and link to a project which you think is worth inclusion. Comments will be posted at the Editors discretion and may be edited.
