Abstract

This text is a summary of some known techniques of three-dimensional representation used over these last years in Brittany by a human science laboratory with more or less success regarding the time/cost/results ratio. We try to take advantage of any technical possibilities available to create digital models of archaeological surfaces (orthostats, soils, tumuli) from existing drawings or by direct recording through different digital techniques : a laser theodolite station, photogrammetry, a 3D model created from digital photographs, and
a surface 3D scanner. Four case studies on the Carnac area (Brittany) are summarized.
