A 3D Digital Approach to Study, Analyse and (Re)Interpret Cultural Heritage: the Case Study of Ayia Irini (Cyprus and Sweden)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


This paper focuses on the on-going doctoral research of the writer. Specifically, the topic of this article is on the methodology, the theoretical approach and the first steps of the research. The general aim is the contribution of 3D documentation and the 3D digital approach to the stylistic and typological study of archaeological collections. The study is applied to the collection of the Ayia Irini archaeological excavation (Cyprus). The site was excavated and studied at the beginning of the 20th century by a Swedish archaeological mission and the collection was divided between Cyprus and Sweden. The scope, through the integration of digital technologies, is the three-dimensional documentation of the archaeological material for its (re)interpretation and its metric analysis and comparison. Particularly, the paper will focus on the pipeline and methodology developed for the choice of the sample, its digital acquisition and the analysis of the statues.
