40 beautifully preserved shipwrecks found at bottom of Black Sea

Marine archaeologists working in the Black Sea have discovered and created photogrammetric models of 40 shipwrecks on the bottom of the Black Sea. The team took thousands of still photographs of the shipwrecks, and then used photogrammetry, a technique that uses software to calculate the positions of millions of points in

Pompeii house reconstructed in 3D

A team of researchers has virtually reconstructed a home in Pompeii which belonged to a wealthy banker. The city block the researchers scanned with hand-held laser scanners and a drone is called Insula V1, and was chosen because it was situated at the crossing of two of Pompeii's main thoroughfares. Because of

3D Model of King Richard III’s grave

Researchers have released to the public a 3-dimensional model of King Richard III's grave. This model of King Richard III’s grave shows the king’s remains in-situ shortly after their discovery by University of Leicester archaeologists beneath a car park in Leicester in 2012. The model has been generated using Agisoft’s Photoscan

3-D map of Lincoln’s Presidential Cottage created

Researchers employing the use of lasers have created a 3-D map of Abraham Lincoln's presidential cottage found in Washington, D.C. “It’s a step up from a panoramic photo, because a panoramic photo has a certain amount of distortion and it’s always from a fixed point,” Stull said. “With a panoramic photo,

Face of 7,000-year-old woman reconstructed

Researchers have recreated in 3D the face of a woman who died 7,000 years ago in Tehran, Iran. He told Mehr News that to develop a 3D documentation, “we used whole parts of the skeleton and the principle of symmetry of human skeleton to reconstruct the missing parts or parts which

3D-recreation of Paleolithic skull reveals trauma

Researchers have created a 3D model of a Paleolithic child's skull, revealing a violent head trauma that likely led to brain damage. A Paleolithic child that lived ~100 thousand years ago found at Qafzeh in lower Galilee, Israel, was originally thought to have a skull lesion that resulted from a trauma

Explore Egypt’s Giza Plateau in 3D

A 3D virtual rendition of the Giza Plateau has been posted online for you to explore. It's pretty cool! Engineered by software design firm Dassault Systèmes, in collaboration with Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the free application is available on multiple devices, including 3-D-enabled computer monitors

Orkney Neolithic sites scanned in 3D

Laser scanners are being employed on Orkney to 3D-scan some of the islands historical landmarks. The Heart of Neolithic Orkney is made up of the tomb of Maeshowe, the Stones of Stenness, the Barnhouse Stone, the Watch Stone, the Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae. The recording process will involve
