Abstract


At this document we present a computer protocol, designed for the development of a digital environment which will allow virtual reconstruction of both, the stratigraphic information and the material record found at Cueva de la Cocina (Dos Aguas, Valencia). By this we also mean to relate the most recent fieldwork at the site to that carried on during the 1970s. The first interventions inside the cavity date back to the first half of the XX century, when a complex sequence, which comprehended layers mainly related to the last hunter-gutherers and the first farmers, was identified. Accurateness, both describing and gathering precise information of the site was not a priority according to the methodology of older excavations. However, the fieldwork directed by Javier Fortea during the 1970s was meticulously registered using tridimensional notes of the information referring to the excavated layers and the recovered findings, although an analysis and interpretation of the site was never undertaken. Nowadays, we intend to integrate that information into a virtual working environment, so that, using specific software, data can be digitally processed for its 3D visualization and further analysis. Resorting to different statistical analysis and graphic representation packages has also been required. The results presented here refer to virtualization of the tridimensional information of one of the units excavated during the 2015 campaign, along with two adjacent units of the intervention developed by Javier Fortea. Thus, we try to show an example not only of the different potentialities that digitalization offers when registering detailed information of the excavated record, but also of its usefulness as a working tool in order to recover older interventions.
