Weymouth Vikings

The extraordinary mass burial site on Ridgeway Hill excavated in June 2009 during the earthwork operation for the Weymouth relief road continues to reveal its secrets, isotope analysis of executed individuals from the mass burial has revealed that they are likely to have originated from a variety of places within the Scandinavian countries. This animation is a Multiple View Reconstruction; many photographs have been taken of the feature from as many different angles as possible and combined in software to produce a 3D model. The model was then animated to produce this fly-through view. The work was conducted by OA Digital using Open Source Software on behalf of Oxford Archaeology South; please visit http://oadigital.net for more information or to work with us.
