« Archaeologizing Heritage » ?

Michael Falser, Monica Juneja (eds), « Archaeologizing Heritage » ? Transcultural Entanglements between Local Social Practices and Global Virtual Realities, Springer, 2013.

Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Cultural Heritage and the Temples of Angkor (Chair of Global Art History, Heidelberg University, 2–5 May 2010)

This book investigates what has constituted notions of « archaeological heritage » from colonial times to the present. It includes case studies of sites in South and Southeast Asia with a special focus on Angkor, Cambodia. The contributions, the subjects of which range from architectural and intellectual history to historic preservation and restoration, evaluate historical processes spanning two centuries which saw the imagination and production of « dead archaeological ruins » by often overlooking living local, social, and ritual forms of usage on site.

Case studies from computational modelling in archaeology discuss a comparable paradigmatic change from a mere simulation of supposedly dead archaeological building material to an increasing appreciation and scientific incorporation of the knowledge of local stakeholders. This book seeks to bring these different approaches from the humanities and engineering sciences into a trans-disciplinary discussion.

Capturing time : Preserving Wat Phra Si San Phet and other historical sites, in 3D and forever

Capturing time : Preserving Wat Phra Si San Phet and other historical sites, in 3D and forever, 28/06/2017, Bangkok Post

From now people will be able to virtually experience the historic city of Ayutthaya anytime and anywhere, as Wat Phra Si San Phet has been digitally preserved thanks to CyArk, an international non-profit organisation that works in collaboration with Seagate Thailand and UNESCO.

Wat Phra Si San Phet was selected by CyArk as part of their international programme for digital preservation through aerial surveys conducted with drones, terrestrial laser scanning known as Lidar, and photogrammetry exercises.

Earlier this month, digital scanning and archiving of the Unesco World Heritage site commenced. Data and images from the field exercise will be turned into photo-real 3D models for future generations of students, tourists and cultural-heritage enthusiasts. It will be launched next month.
