3D Photogrammetry and Woodland Mud Glyphs from 19th Unnamed Cave, Alabama
This is an abstract from the "Technique and Interpretation in the Archaeology of Rock Art" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The production of 3D models with photogrammetry has seen some recent application in rock art studies as a means of documenting sites and presenting them to the public. However, the use of photogrammetric models as data sources for discovery and analysis has received little attention. In this paper, we present work at 19th Unnamed Cave in Alabama, a Woodland Period mud glyph cave art site containing a rich assemblage of glyphs. 3D modelling has allowed us to see rock art images we were unable to see without the method and to begin to treat the models as quantitative spatial data.
