Structural and lighting models for the Minoan Cemetery at Phourni, Crete

Structural and lighting models for the Minoan Cemetery at Phourni, Crete
The importance of death to the living is of interest to scholars in a range of disciplines. This paper describes a
computer-based research project undertaken to create a series of alternative readings of the dataset from the
Minoan cemetery at Phourni, Crete. This attempted to evaluate the tombs’ architecture, use, visual impact, their
capacity as well as the contribution of illumination to their interior, by using computer graphic methodologies.
However, since the software deployed is primarily developed for use in other fields, there are certain limitations
and difficulties for a virtual reconstruction of such an archaeological site, which can prevent production of a
model that is accurate in every detail. This paper will discuss the results and these constraints. It will also address
problems and innovative components, suggesting potential solutions and recommending additional work for the
future.

Abstract

The importance of death to the living is of interest to scholars in a range of disciplines. This paper describes a
computer-based research project undertaken to create a series of alternative readings of the dataset from the
Minoan cemetery at Phourni, Crete. This attempted to evaluate the tombs’ architecture, use, visual impact, their
capacity as well as the contribution of illumination to their interior, by using computer graphic methodologies.
However, since the software deployed is primarily developed for use in other fields, there are certain limitations
and difficulties for a virtual reconstruction of such an archaeological site, which can prevent production of a
model that is accurate in every detail. This paper will discuss the results and these constraints. It will also address
problems and innovative components, suggesting potential solutions and recommending additional work for the
future.
