Using 3D methods to classify temporal components of the site

Our most recent efforts have been to classify the site into temporal components – a very challenging task given the complex stratigraphy!  Having obtained dates from some samples, we were able to roughly subdivide the site into components by correlating the locations of the dated samples to changes in stratigraphy, shell density, and shell types.  The video below highlights one area of the site that has been subdivided in this way.  After the temporal components were defined in 3 dimensions, we could classify other data by component, e.g. artifacts (as seen in the video) & faunal...

3D Mauls and Segmented Stones “In-Situ”

Our latest 3D modelling task has involved starting to place some of the more significant artifacts into our GIS as 3D models, as close as possible to how they were oriented when they were discovered.  So far, we have 3D models of a segmented stone, a zoomorphic concretion, and three mauls now in our GIS (Geographic Information System), as shown in our two videos below.  Since our last videos, we have also added some landmarks as 3D objects: these include a big rock, the double lines of several canoe runs, the railway tracks, a pit feature and a standing stone feature near the stacked...
