Abstract


Between 2010 and 2012, under the International Cooperation for Development, a virtual archeology project was realized in Amazonian Andes of Peru. The project was carried out with collaboration from Universitat Politécnica de València (UPV) and the Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional al Desarrollo (AECID), with archeologists taking part in Proyecto Especial Kuélap (PEK). The goal was to create a virtualization of Kuélap, an important monumental citadel constructed by the ancient Chachapoya society. The fruits of the project was the website “kuelapvirtual.com", that offers an interactive virtual visit (like street view) as well as geographical and archaeological information of interest. Furthermore, a virtual 3D reconstruction was created from blueprints, topographic data available and assistance from archaeologists. The 3d digital model made the fabrication of a two prototipes: an archaeological model in scale 1:750 and a topographical model in scale 1:17500, obtained through 3D printing at the Department of Engineering Projects at Universitat Politècnica de València.
