Cova Eirós is located in the province of Lugo, north-western Iberia. The cave site contains a number of Palaeolithic engravings—narrow and shallow grooves—that are dispersed on the walls of the cave. As direct contact with the panel would be extremely harmful for the rock surface, we have decided to use 3D methods to record the motifs. Thus, we app...

Throughout the decades different views about the Galician petroglyphs has been put forward by the researchers in regard to the context and significance of this artistic phenomenon. In recent years, there has been a notable increase in the corpus of carved sites and different topics have been addressed, from spatial analysis to the application of ne...

With the aim of offering a first approach to issues of such importance as the number of sites that make up the Gali- cian rock art, their iconographic variability or geographical distribution, we have analysed the official archaeological in- ventory of the Galician autonomous government (Servizo de Arqueoloxía da la Dirección Xeral do Patrimonio Cu...

https://c-rellan.shinyapps.io/petroglifos_galicia/ This is simple web app displaying the inventory of rock art sites in Galicia (Northwestern Spain). The app was made using the R Shiny, Leaflet and ggplot2 packages. The inventory was collected from the "Preinventario de Bens Arqueolóxicos da Dirección Xeral de Patrimonio Cultural" (Consellería de...
Article
Several works have highlighted the relevance of 3D modelling techniques for the study of rock art, especially in case of deteriorated state of preservation. This paper presents a methodological approach to accurate document two Bronze Age rock art panels in Galicia (Spain), using photogrammetry SfM. The main aim is to show the application of digita...

From the sierra to the lowlands: new data on the settlement of the Barbanza Peninsula from Prehistoric to Medieval times. We review the survey works carried through in the district of Barbanza, now extended to the parishes of Macenda and Bealo in search of livestock / pastoral settlements. In the course of these explorations a Copper Age site was d...

3D modelling has become in recent years one of the main branches in the archaeological research. Some authors even regard it as the most important innovation in data acquisition and interpretation since GIS. From this perspective, many different works have been carried out focusing on the development of several techniques to implement a better visu...

Traditionally, the province of A Coruña has not been a particular focus of interest in Galician rock art studies, the main research efforts being devoted to Pontevedra. While not starting from scratch when approaching the subject, it is important to keep in mind that the first considerations about the spatial distribution of the petroglyphs were no...

Este trabajo analiza el caso particular de un nuevo petroglifo, no documentado hasta el momento, localizado en Cangas do Morrazo (Galicia, noroeste de la península ibérica), que hemos decidido denominar Forno de Anguieiro debido a su particular historia. A pesar de que este petroglifo fue descubierto recientemente, su existencia es dilatada en el t...

This work aims to present a new methodological approximation to enhance and depict details in 3D models, named AsTrend. It is based on the extraction of las points from a tridimensional model, which are processed with the most common LiDAR visualisation techniques. It is being revealed as an accurate method to study the grooves of the carvings in i...

In this chapter a revision of the traditional tracing methods over petroglyphs through the employment of three dimensional models is proposed. The different techniques suggested here are: Radiance Scaling and Algebraic Point Set Surfaces (APSS). Radiance Scaling is a shader that adjusts reflected light intensities in a way dependent on both surface...

Today, despite the notable progress on the knowledge about Galician carvings, we still lack an updated census of these and, as a result, we do not have adequate information about the precise number or the geographical distribution of the main groups of motifs that make up this artistic phenomenon. In order to tackle this problem, we have gone throu...

A través da recollida de datos na Dirección Xeral de Patrimonio Cultural da Xunta de Galicia (DXPC) e de prospeccións arqueolóxicas realizadas con pos- terioridade, achegarémonos a coñecer a arte rupestre ao aire libre no concello de O Rosal. A primeira exploración dos datos extraídos na DXPC indican un censo baixo de efectivos; sen embargo, os res...

The aim of this paper is to compare the tracing made at the Bronze Age petroglyph of “Barreira” in Verdoejo (Portugal) (Novoa and Costas 2004) with two different and new methodologies based on photogrammetry. This technique is oriented to reduce the different problems of subjectivity that are present in the old systems of registry, and furthermore...

There exists so many different methodologies to record the open-air rock art carving. In Galicia researches have used traditionally systems of registry such as night lighting or frottage to try to reproduce the rock art-carving present at the stones, methods that although being very effective are subject to a great subjectivity (Seoane Veiga Yoland...
