3D Recording and Total Archaeology: From Landscapes to Historical Buildings:

3D Recording and Total Archaeology: From Landscapes to Historical Buildings: The paper presents the experience and in particular two case studies of 3D recording undertaken by two laboratories of the University of Siena, Italy (LAP&T and LAAUM). The case studies focus respectively on landscape and on historical building recording. The paper describes the first step in a new approach to the documentation and interpretation of the archaeological record, discussing and emphasising the need to collect and analyse 3D documentation at different scales of detail: from artefact to landscape. As first result, this approach should improve the documentation of cultural contexts and therefore increase the opportunity to achieve archaeological understanding. The first part of the paper describes the contribution of LiDAR data in landscape analysis, underlining the importance of very accurate DTMs in geomorphological analysis and their influence on landscape archaeology. The geographical background is southern Tuscany and the Po Valley in northern Italy. At a completely different scale of detail the final part of the paper presents the results of the laser scanning and stratigraphical analysis of an historical building in southern Tuscany. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Heritage in the Digital Era SAGE

Abstract

The paper presents the experience and in particular two case studies of 3D recording undertaken by two laboratories of the University of Siena, Italy (LAP&T and LAAUM). The case studies focus respectively on landscape and on historical building recording. The paper describes the first step in a new approach to the documentation and interpretation of the archaeological record, discussing and emphasising the need to collect and analyse 3D documentation at different scales of detail: from artefact to landscape. As first result, this approach should improve the documentation of cultural contexts and therefore increase the opportunity to achieve archaeological understanding. The first part of the paper describes the contribution of LiDAR data in landscape analysis, underlining the importance of very accurate DTMs in geomorphological analysis and their influence on landscape archaeology. The geographical background is southern Tuscany and the Po Valley in northern Italy. At a completely different scale of detail the final part of the paper presents the results of the laser scanning and stratigraphical analysis of an historical building in southern Tuscany.
