Beernem ‘Meerbergstraat’ (2013)

Development-led excavation by GATE bvba at Beernem ‘Meerbergstraat’ revealed traces of (Late) Medieval occupation history. Only one archaeological feature was image-based 3D recorded. It concerned a circular feature, measuring approximately 2.84 by 2.28 m, characterized by a dark, organic and gradual infilling. The feature could be interpreted as a well, and based on the ceramics it was dated in the 12th-13th century. The well was 3D recorded at three time-intervals, i.e. in surface, in section, and in section with palaeo-ecological sample (see illustration).

The results of the palaeo-ecological research are published in the 2014 edition of Archaeologia mediaevalis (in Dutch).


The 200,000 faces 3D model of the well in section can be explored below.
