Last week, Labtec members participated in the VII International Congress “The Art of Prehistoric Societies”, held in Cuenca. Our director, Olivia Rivero, presented a paper in the session “Data analysis and interpretation of prehistoric art”, in which she discussed the research carried out within the framework of the ArtMindHuman PID2021-125166OB-I00 project, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. In addition, we presented the results of various ongoing research projects, from the application of statistical analysis to the study of Palaeolithic art, to the use of GIS for the analysis of the spatial location of the sites. We also present our methodology for the three-dimensional restitution and enhancement of Palaeolithic art which you can see in our virtual museum: skfb.ly/o6stO
In addition, we had the opportunity to visit sites with Palaeolithic and post-Palaeolithic rock art, such as Selva Pascuala, Peña del Escrito, Cueva del Tío Modesto and Cueva de Los Casares.
From the Prehistoric Technology Laboratory, we would like to congratulate the organisers of the congress for such a successful meeting, both on a scientific and personal level, creating new research networks between researchers from different countries.
Finally, we would like to announce that the LabTec team has taken over, and the next ASP will be held in Salamanca in 2024. We look forward to seeing you!
