Description

A laser scanning survey was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group at the High Pasture Cave site in 2008. The survey focused on recording a detailed digital scan of Bone Passage to the junction of the ramp and main stream passages, and recording of the stone-built stairwell leading to the surface. The scans of the natural cave passages were successful allowing detailed plans, elevations and section drawings to be produced, along with fly-through animation and annotated animation of the entrance area. Unfortunately, only limited survey data was collected from the stairwell entrance to Bone Passage due to the restricted nature of this structure and its steepness, and the limited minimum focal range of the laser scanning equipment. <1>
