Simulating the past using present-day scans

Post by bertazizoglu »

Laser scanning for historic preservation also helps experts simulate past site conditions. Here's a beautiful example prepared by Winwin Audiovisual rendered in NUBIGON and featured in the recent documentary series broadcast on La2 #Lospilaresdeltiempo.

Here's more on this site:

The palatial Late Antique Roman villa at La Olmeda is situated in Pedrosa de la Vega in the province of Palencia (Castile and León, Spain), near the banks of the Carrión. Long known as the provenance of chance finds, it was finally professionally excavated from 1968 onwards and was declared a Bien de Interés Cultural on 3 April 1996.

The exterior of the La Olmeda villa resembled a fortress. High walls, few windows, and defensive towers at its four corners. Meanwhile, inside hid a luxurious palace. The villa's layout was centered around a large square courtyard, or peristyle, framed by a colonnaded gallery that connected all the house's rooms.

The most enormous and ostentatious rooms faced east. The largest room, the oecus, measured 175 square meters. It was where the lord of the house received visitors. Its decoration and spaciousness symbolize wealth and power, so it boasts the most spectacular mosaic.

The triclinia were the dining rooms, spaces designed for spending time; hence, they had heating systems beneath their floors. At the northern and southern ends were the smaller service rooms dedicated to work and storage; hence, they had earthen or baked mortar floors. In the eastern wing, we find an essential annex for the Romans: the baths or thermae, accessed through the palaestra, a space created for sports. This palatial villa of La Olmeda covers nearly 4,500 square meters, of which 1,500 are covered by invaluable mosaics.
