A glimpse on the reconstruction procedure

May 22, 2013

Based upon the position in which archaeologists found the remains in Monte Michele tomb number 5, we were able to reconstruct the spatial distribution of the objects with a sufficient level of accuracy.

This is particularly true for the objects on the right side of the tomb, where a wagon occupied a great part of the space.  Several objects were positioned on its load bed, including the cinerary urn with the remains of the man. Together with the urn, there were a dagger, three spears and a sceptre, symbols of  the power that the deceased had in his community.

The following images show the first stage of the reconstruction of this group of objects.
