Ormaig rock art excavation, Kilmartin Glen, 2007 3D Model
Ormaig is a major rock art site near Kilmartin Glen, on the west coast of Scotland. In 2007, I worked here as an excavator and photographer during fieldwork by Southampton University and Kilmartin Museum. A large area of Exposure 1 South was excavated and carefully cleaned.
The technology which we now use for photogrammetry was still being developed in 2007, and the technique was not used for this project. Instead, the rock art was recorded by tracing. Fortunately, I did capture the freshly excavated outcrop as a mosaic of photographs from which I have since been able to generate this 3D model. Unfortunately, the overlap between photographs was insufficient for a flawless model, leaving a couple of holes in the mesh.
For the Ormaig surveys I have adopted the numbering scheme used during the excavation. Another version of this model has been uploaded which does not have photographic textures. N indicates True North.
