Abstract

Rock art recordings are at the core of research and management of rock art sites. They are an essential component of any database formed for research and protection programmes. This article explores the potential of 3D laser scanning for the recording of rock art. The rock art site chosen to undertake the fieldwork is a rock covered with many cup marks (stone 105 in Boughey & Vickerman 2003) situated on Rombald’s Moor in West Yorkshire. The results of the initial laser scanning are provided. Gridded 3D surface, elevation contours and maximum curvature colouring illustrate some examples for 3D rock art visualisation.
