Laser Archaeology

posted by on 2011.10.10, under Archaeology, Art

Here are some images from CyArk and The Scottish Ten – two interesting and related projects dedicated to documenting archaeology with lasers. The Scottish Ten is documenting 5 UNESCO sites in Scotland, and 5 other UNESCO sites throughout the world (however, I’m not sure Mount Rushmore is a UNESCO site…). There are more images on The Scottish Ten website. CyArk is aiming to be a library of all kinds of 21st century archaeology. They have lots of laser images, photos, videos etc, including this one of the Great Plaza at the Mayan city of Tikal
