Abstract:
Archaeological research and practice is based on a paradox; the excavated three-dimensional data are transformed into two-dimensional representations in an attempt to create a sustainable record, which will act as a reference back to the process of excavation. These two-dimensional products, which carry interpretations, ambiguities and contradictions are restored to three-dimensional information, and are utilised in computer graphic simulations in an attempt to visualise, research and understand past experiences, attitudes and structures. This thesis examines the variable and dialectic processes among excavation, recording, perception, interpretation and simulation in order to understand how knowledge is produced in any project that aims to model three-dimensional aspects of the past. Koutroulou Magoula, a distinctive Middle Neolithic tell site in Phthiotida, Greece, provides a case study to problematise the process of reconstruction and contributes a novel three-dimensional approach to the study of Greek Neolithic space.
