3D Models of Archeological Monuments of Siberia to Appear
November 14, 2015 15:07

The 3D technology developed by French scientists - visualization of archaeological monuments and ancient artifacts - will be applied by Russian scientists in Siberia to make 3-dimensional models of artifacts from the Denisova Cave, the Altai rock paintings, and other historical sites.

It was reported about by the vice rector of the Novosibirsk State University, Lyudmila Lbova, one of the members of the joint Russian-French project.

"Earlier we started working on an entire series of the most ancient jewelry from the archeological sites of Siberia. It was first of all the well-known, unique site of the Denisova Cave. It was also Malaya Seya (Khakassia), and a few objects in the vicinity of Lake Baikal. In the last year we approached a very important and complicated challenge - the virtualization of the unique heritage of the Siberian Upper Paleolithic monument of Malta (Irkutsk Region), which was discovered in 1926-28", - she informed.

Lyudmila Lbova also mentioned active participation of the French colleagues in previous years of collaboration as well.
On November 9, 2015 the "mirror" Russian-French Laboratory for Multidisciplinary Research of Primitive Art of Eurasia was officially opened in the Novosibirsk State University. The Universities of Bordeaux and Savoy, as well as the Archeology and Ethnography Institute (IAET) of the Siberian Branch of RAS take part in the project.

The laboratory foundation was preceded by collaborations of the Russian scientists in Altai, including the Ukok Plateau. The deputy director of the AEI, Vyacheslav Molodin noticed that the French technology enabled the Siberian scientists to discover ealier unknown plots and images.

The scientist assumed that the age of the animal pictures "found" at the Ukok Plateau, mostly horses, makes about 12 to 14 thousand years. They are made in the manner that is characteristic of the late Pleistocene sub-era.

The 3D modeling technology engineered by the French scientists makes it possible to capture archaeological objects and artifacts with high precision for their preservation and detailed study, and afterwards reproduce it for the general public, which usually has no access to them.
