Digital 3D recording represents the cutting edge in archaeological recording and interpretation. Technology, previously too costly, is now accessible and allows archaeologists to investigate landscapes in a previously impossible way, evaluating them holistically, both as individual sites and components within cultural landscapes. DML-3D is designed to integrate traditional archaeological methods with emerging techniques in photogrammetric site recording. A focus is placed on maritime archaeological material which ranges from historic periods to several millennia before present, which deliberately represents the cross-temporal, international field of maritime archaeology.
