The Use of 3D Spatial Technology in Support of Field Practice
Continuing in the series of HEAS Seminar Series – Archaeological Science, Nicolò Dell’Unto, Department of Archaeology
and Ancient History, Lund University will deliver an Online only talk on Monday the 20th March 2023 at 10:30.
The proliferation of tools and techniques for the 3D recording of archaeological evidence has significantly impacted the interpretation process undertaken by archaeologists and heritage practitioners working in the field. The ability to visually analyse complex datasets in three dimensions has made it possible to identify previously unrecognisable information and has opened up new ways for scholars to engage with archaeological material. Although archaeologists are only beginning to realise the potential of these tools to support archaeological practice, experiments in 3D visualisation have demonstrated how 3D models provide more efficient tools for interpreting the past.
During the last decade, the Lund University Digital Archaeology Lab – DARKLab – has developed several field experiments to study the effects of 3D visualisation technology on knowledge production. By presenting different case studies, this presentation will explore the potential, limitations and future developments of 3D data as a medium for documenting, analysing and publishing archaeological interpretations.
