This blog has now officially passed 5000 views. To celebrate here are some news in the field. Thank you all for the support : )
- 3D Mauls and Segmented Stones “In-Situ”: GIS and 3D modelling come together for archaeology.
- New online CAA Proceedings: All Proceedings from 1973 to 2011, except of 2002 and 2010, can now be accessed via the CAA website.
- Up 3D: These guys provide 3D scanning services and one of their listed applications is Archaeology. Check their website out to see some archaeology 3D models.
- Key dates for the CAA conference announced: Although the deadline for abstracts just passed, one can still attend the conference as a guest. Students are also able to apply for bursaries from various institutions in order to attend the conference.
- ArcLand survey about aerial photograph archives: ArcLand is performing a survey to gather information on archives of aerial photos with potential for archaeological and landscape research in Europe. If your institution has an aerial photograph archive support ArcLand by providing some information about it.
- Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies: As mentioned in an older post, the conference on cultural heritage and new technologies will be taking place in Vienna from the 11th to the 13th of November. Those attending, have a good time!
- X-rays used to analyse contents of box: X-rays were used to analyse the contents of a bronze box found in an Entruscan tomb.
- Researchers use high-resolution CT scans and 3D modeling to analyse world’s oldest data storage system: Researchers use high-resolution CT scans and 3D modelling to look inside Mesopotamian clay balls said to be the first data storage system.
- Archaeologists use 3D modeling to reconstruct the 1,500-year-old crime scene: Archaeologists have discovered the site of a 1500 year old massacre and are using 3D modelling to recreate the scene.
