Abstract

The aim of this paper is the recreation and the measurement of the fragments of terra sigillata and molds which have the same decoration documented in the landfill court 30 of the 1999 campaign of Los Villares de Andújar. To carry it out, we have used the 3D laser technology for the reconstruction of the materials, using an ARTEC Scanner, which it carried out a metrological study recording the dimensions of the variables that appear in several decorative minimal units. In conclusión, we intented to associate the vessels to the tools, that is, the molds that were used for the elaboration of the vessels, in order to go into depht the production process of the terra Sigillata, mainly in the modeling phase.
