Results from the 3D Laser Scan of the Roman Footprints

As you know the excavation has recently revealed deposits associated with the building of the first amphitheatre and the impressions of footprints pressed in to the pre-Roman ground surface. We commissioned Birmingham Archaeology to undertake a 3D laserscan of these footprints to make a permanent record and as promised here are the results.

The scanner produced a 3D 'point-cloud' showing the shape of the footprints and a full colour 'texture-map' of the surface. The footprints show that a child or small adult walked barefoot across the site before the amphitheatre was built.

I have been doing a research project on Chester and have found the CAP site incredibly fascinating and useful. I have a 'small please do if you can' and that is to enter the year on site pages. Instead of August 9, please use August 9 2007 or whatever.

Cheers and good luck

Hello Christine,

I'm so pleased that you have found the CAP site both fascinating and useful.

The date you mention is created automatically by the blogsite itself and I have no way of changing this setting. BUT I will keep your request in mind and next time I post a comment I will include the year in the title.Hope this is of help.
