The aim of the project is to apply 3D scanning technology to create a virtual museum providing a picture of the Neolithic culture, based on the example of the settlement in Bylany (Czech Republic), dating from the 6th - 5th millennium B. C. The main parameter of the applied research is to set up a methodology for recording and presenting archaeological finds digitally. The basic technology is optical 3D scanning of artefacts that exactly reflect the 3D surface geometry and will bring new presentation possibilities. Acquired digital records can also serve as well as for research and educational purposes on all academic levels. The project's most important output consists in a virtual museum on the web of the Neolithic settlement area. Moreover, the open library of 3D scans will integrate a thematic GIS map of the Bylany site and its virtual model showing different forms of the immovable heritage (i. e., houses, circle enclosures and villages).
