Development of a novel information system for the automated reconstruction of fragmented important archaeological findings

Instityte of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS)

2014

 The aim of the project is to develop a novel information system for processing 3D representations of fragmented archaeological findings, by means of which, automated virtual and perhaps, actual reconstruction of the findings will be accomplished. The system will be designed in order to provide ensembles of potentially matching fragments to the user, together with a corresponding matching probability. A main novelty of this system will be the use of many new criteria concerning the fragmented pieces’ matching. The system will be first applied to the virtual reconstruction of segments of broken burial vessels and wall-paintings of the Mycenaean era, stored in the laboratories of National Archaeological Museum of Greece. Note that both the burial segments of vessels and the fragmented wall-paintings, the unearthing of which was first supervised by Heinrich Schliemann, is of great importance for Archaeology, History and obviously, the National Archaeological Museum itself.
