Photogrammetric methods for recording archaeological structures at Zeviya Tivilki on the Upper Tigris, Turkey

Photogrammetric methods for recording archaeological structures at Zeviya Tivilki on the Upper Tigris, Turkey | N.A. archeology | Scoop.it

The construction of large dams — and consequently the creation of extensive reservoirs — has obvious implications for the archaeological heritage and requires rapid archaeological intervention within the salvage projects set up in mitigation.

 

This is the case of the Ilisu Dam, which will affect the Upper Tigris region in a few years. The time allowed to excavate the sites in the construction area (Ökse et al. 2008) is even more limited, requiring us to carry out the investigations very rapidly.

 

As a result, we have developed a way of recording structures, using innovative methods of photogrammetry, to document quickly the plan and profiles of a single-storied building complex at the Iron Age settlement site of Zeviya Tivilki (Ökse et al. 2010).

 

The complex consists of foundations of rough stones set directly on the bedrock.

Spectacular Ancient Ruins You've Never Heard Of - Starry-Eyed Travels

Spectacular Ancient Ruins You've Never Heard Of - Starry-Eyed Travels | N.A. archeology | Scoop.it

I am a self-confessed history geek, so it is not surprising that many of my travels feature ancient sites quite heavily. I have a bit of a vivid imagination, so it doesn’t take much for a place steeped in history to come alive to me, particularly if it is a half-forgotten place, overshadowed by far more famous neighbours. So come with me to the highlands of Peru, the deserts of Argentina, the South of France - and my hometown. Are you ready to travel through time?
