Recurrent Photogrammetry: Theory, Methodology and Application.


The integration of digital tools into the research, interpretation, and public outreach of historical shipwreck sites is rapidly becoming a requirement for any archaeology project. A workflow focused on utilizing photogrammetry point cloud data is presented here, developed from multiple underwater research field seasons, as well as work conducted in 2017 at the Highbourne Cay shipwreck site in the Exumas, Bahamas. The workflow uses photogrammetry for the creation of real-scale, three-dimensional digital models of sites and artifacts. This data is then incorporated into a theoretically controlled framework for both modelling and data-capture purposes, as well as applied approaches suitable for specialists and local heritage managers alike. Results are discussed in terms of the impact of the virtualization of the archaeological data on the discipline, particularly in the collection, storage, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of knowledge.
