Roman Urn in Trench Section
Photo-realistic & metrically accurate 3-D reconstruction
This is a small but excellent example of how photogrammetric methods can be employed in archaeological recording and presentation. This example shows a metrically accurate and photo-realistic 3-D model of a Roman cremation urn in the section of an archaeological trench. What is of particular interest is that I was able to construct this model using only archive digital imagery, photographs that were taken on-site which were not originally intended for photogrammetric reconstruction. The resulting 3-D model has 85500 polygons which provide an accurate representation of the surface of the urn and the inclusions within the section.
