Digital Excavations

Virtual stratigraphies and interactive site reports from archaeological excavations 

The three-dimensional recording is commonly used to support data documentation, management, and analysis in archaeological excavations carried out at the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Lund University. This data, stored in the servers of the faculty, is now accessible and navigable for both researchers and students. 
This webpage hosts all the web platforms and information systems developed and tested during the last years at the DARKLab through several experiments. These are the results of collaborative work conducted during Paola Derudas’ PhD project.

The Interactive Visualization System  displays 3D data and essential information on excavations: it allows free exploration and interaction with the 3D models and mapped information through dedicated tools. 
Data from the diverse excavations of Södra Sallerup, Västra Vång, Vambåsa, Gribshunden, and the Domsten Bronze age urns, are published using IVS.

The Interactive Reporting System is a 3D web platform for creating dynamic archaeological reports. IRS presents the data of the multi-year investigation of Kämpinge, a Mesolithic site in southwestern Skåne. It was also employed during the pandemic crisis to support digital courses for Masters's students in archaeological practice.

The Archaeological Interactive Report is an information system to document and manage data from archaeological excavations. It embeds the heterogeneous formats of excavations datasets, including 3D models. AIR can also compose, explore and share interactive multimedia reports. AIR is the primary documentation tool for the excavations of Västra Vång and Gribshunden, proving a suitable and flexible tool for diverse investigation types.
