Nidderdale CS Excavation 3D Model
Excavation of a platform being undertaken by the Iron-Age (Nidderdale) Community Archaeology Group in the Nidderdale area of North Yorkshire, England.
During field surveys, a curving bank was identified as a site of interest. A small follow up excavation revealed a built platform, but with no dateable finds. Towards the end of 2018 the team returned to the site and extended the trench around an oak tree, which towered over the site.
Finds have been far and few between, with the main discoveries being the stone scatters (some places), phases of construction, a single piece of slag, 3 rounded stones similar to slingshots and a portable carved rock with a single cup mark.
The model was created from 56 images captured using drone mounted Go Pro 3+ black on 9 April 2019. Overhanging oak branches caused problems with the models texture and some ‘cloning’ has taken place to tidy the stones up.
