The Former Shape of the Extinct Medieval Settlement Pfaffenschlag near Slavonice and its Surroundings through Computer Reconstruction

Abstract: Not far from Slavonice in the South Bohemian region we can find the extinct medieval settlement Pfaffenschlag founded in the 13th century on the site of an older settlement and was probably burned in the Hussite wars, which is the original medieval form of the settlement. In the 50s and 60s of the 20th century a research was carried out and, next to sixteen houses, also farm buildings were exhibited together with courtyards giving the idea of the appearance and composition of the medieval farmland and the entire settlement. The area of Pfaffenschlag is spread over several hectares (2.2 hectares). Mapping of relics, terrain, and aerial laser scanning show distinctly the structure of the village, individual estates, gardens, and adjacent fields. For better clarity and "third dimension" of standing buildings, a digital model was developed, also based on the mass reconstruction of Dr. V. Nekuda. On the basis of processed documents was created a computer reconstruction of both the whole area of the village with subsequent fields and a more detailed form of one farm house.The 3D terrain model reflects the available documentation of the existing form, including the 5th precise generation laser scanning and excavation documentation. The settlement area is processed including possible vegetation - the boundary between fields, in the area of the village or along the stream. Objects are created in an ideal form according to the reference forms with indications of material breakdown. Due to the digital form and the 3D model of the whole settlement, it is possible to use it even in new media.
