The creation of three-dimensional digital reconstructions of the sites of Sea Mills Roman Ruins, in Bristol, England.
This forms part of the PhD Research produced by Alexander T. R. Birkett [https://orcid.org/0000-0002-1150-5464] entitled "Virtual Ruins, Real Insights: Establishing A Framework for three-dimensional Modelling in Archaeology".
This thesis aims to critically re-evaluate the state of Three-dimensional modelling within the field of archaeology by shifting the focus from physical fidelity to the rigour of interpretation. This is achieved with a focus on its pivotal role in documenting and reconstructing built structures, particularly domestic buildings, during and after excavation.
This is achieved through the application of three-dimensional recording techniques such as photogrammetry finite element analysis, lighting analysis, and methods for visually categorising levels of certainty. These are situated within a broader framework of methods to ensure ease of integration into the established processes of archaeological excavation.
The reconstruction of the Sea Mills Roman Ruins is one of three case studies focusing on digitally reconstructing the archaeological remains situated in Sea Mills, Bristol at ST55100 75800, excavated in 1934 by Alfred J. Selley. The only surviving evidence of this Roman settlement today is the excavated remains of a roadside structure in Sea Mills.
