Time travel using 3D-methodologies : visualizing the medieval context of a batismal font

Dell'Unto, Nicolo LU ; Nilsson, Ing-Marie LU and Wienberg, Jes LU (2017) In The Archaeology of Time Travel p.25-45
Abstract
Time travel is often associated with popular mediation. This article demonstrates how time travel using digital visualization may also be a useful tool doing research. The case study is the medieval cathedral and monastery of Dalby in Sweden with a 12th century crypt and font. The crypt may have functioned as a baptismal chapel in the Middle Ages. Digital 3 D techniques including terrestrial laser scanner and image based modelling are used to reconstruct the original architecture of the crypt, to move back the font and to conduct simulations of the use of the space in the liturgy.
