Reading The Hurlers - Dig Week - Day 5 - Part 2
Members of the U3A formed a team under tuition from Reading The Hurlers media head Matt Clark, to scan and 3d-map the Hurlers standing stones and the stones recently exposed in the dig. This was done through a range of techniques, from detailed photogeometry / photogrametry (terms for software that captures real-world data as 3d models - surface texture, colour and shape) techniques to laser depth scanning. Many of the megaliths and trenches, large and small, were digitally captured, allowing further off-site study. Here is a selection of the captured 3D models.
