Tell er Ras Model from Plans and Profiles
The model has been constructed from pen and ink drawings created in the late 1960s to depict the stratigraphy of the Roman Temple site (second to fourth centuries CE) at Tell er Ras situated on Mt. Gerezim overlooking the city of Nablus situated some 50 miles north of Jerusalem. The original drawings were done by Oliver Unwin for the American Schools of Oriental Research excavations at that site directed by Robert Bull. This model allows researchers to view the stratigraphic elements of the site as a single entity rather than as a collection of individual plans and cross-sections.
Tell el-Hesi Model from Photogrammetry
Tell el-Hesi is a major archaeological site located on the south bank of Wadi el-Hesi (Nahal Shiqma), Israel. This site was excavated from 1890-1892 and from 1970-1983.
Citadel (Husn) Model from Photogrammetry
Al Baleed Archaeological Park, Salalah, Oman. The large imposing mound now cleared of external debris is the citadel/husn and was the target of excavations between 1997‐2007. Now slightly higher than 13 m., visible from the southern side are the semi‐attached corner bastions and the southern gate in the center. The towers and gate belong to the latest phase of the city (1500 AD). The latter has a bent‐axis configuration leading internally to a very large staircase. Internal excavations revealed a central courtyard surrounded by suites of rooms. Probably originally over four stories high, the building represents the home and ruling center of the Sultan. Clearly visible on the southern side, are massive blocks of the earliest city, ca. 950 AD. An earlier Iron Age settlement lies under the husn.
