Carlungie Souterrain KAP

Carlungie souterrain is one of three of these Iron Age cellars near to Dundee which have served as a bit of a testing ground for my equipment and techniques for low altitude aerial photography and photogrammetry. These images were taken using a kite during mid afternoon sunlight to show up the paved floor.

The smaller snaking passageway would have lead from space where the residents lived to the large cellar space which would have been roofed, creating cool and dry conditions. From above the remains form an interesting sprawling pattern which shows the vast extent of the storage space. The entrance passage in contrast is very narrow and would only have been accessible by crawling.

I will use this sequence to generate a 3D model which I can use to experiment with ways of viewing the site. The RCAHMS site record can be found here.
