3D recon­struc­tion of the archaeo­me­tall­ur­gi­cal exca­va­ti­on of Agia Var­va­ra-Almy­ras in Cyprus from 1988 – 1999 on the basis of various plans (2013 – 2016)
for a PhD the­sis in prehi­sto­ry and ear­ly histo­ry at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Zurich


The aim of the pro­ject was to spa­ti­al­ly recon­struct the fin­dings of an archaeo­me­tall­ur­gi­cal exca­va­ti­on from the years 1988 – 1999 in Agia Var­va­ra-Almy­ras, Cyprus.

For the first time, the 3D model allo­wed a cohe­rent view of the tech­ni­cal sequence of cop­per smel­ting and its spa­ti­al orga­ni­za­ti­on to be deve­lo­ped.

The model is based on the drawing docu­men­ta­ti­on of the exca­va­ti­on, which was done ana­lo­gous­ly. A model based on the effec­tive mea­su­rement data was deve­lo­ped, which is the­re­fo­re also true to sca­le.
