3D4Delphi - Modeling of archaeological uncertainty by combining modern 3D surveying methods for scientific documentation and promotion of cultural heritage. Application at the archaeological site of Delphi

The objective of the project is the development of new innovative methods of documentation, analysis and promotion of cultural heritage monuments combining, for the first time, modern techniques of 3D surveying and the mathematical modeling of archaeological uncertainty, by incorporating it in the three-dimensional reconstruction of archaeological monuments. In the area of Delphi, there are important monuments which inherently communicate elements of uncertainty regarding the reconstruction of their past form. For these monuments, diverse non-invasive capture techniques and 3D imaging techniques will be applied. Then, for the first time, based upon 3D captured data, the development of mathematical models of archaeological uncertainty will be conducted in relation to how an archeological structure was formed in the past. This will provide multiple variants of three-dimensional reconstructions based on historical data and excavation findings. The results and new three-dimensional documentation and reconstruction methods that will emerge from this project will be presented in a pilot interactive demonstration setup, that will be designed and installed at the Museum of Delphi. 

Project duration: 36 months (May 2020 – May 2023)

Funding: The Action is co-financed by EPANEK (European Regional Development Fund of the European Union and from national resources) and is implemented through the General Secretariat for Research and Innovation (GSIC)
