High-Tech meets Ice Age

In the context of the management of the World Heritage site "Caves and Ice Age Art in the Swabian Jura" a comprehensive documentation programme has been set up. Both the caves and particular art objects are recorded with 3D scanners, eventually establishing a unique archive of threedimensional data of Ice Age archaeology.


Some of the 3D models are processed and visualised with specific methods in order to present them in the internet.

Please find available 3D models below.
