Sets of photographs used to generate 3D models of dental models using Agisoft Metashape for 4 human individuals. Individuals were from the St. Michael's Litten, Chichester assemblage (dated AD1550-1900) held at University College London, Institute of Archaeology. Sets of photographs are numbered according to specimen number (Specimen numbers 79, 339, 443, 599). The specimen numbers correspond to the skeleton numbers of each individual. The site code for St. Michael's Litten is ESC11. The structure-from-motion 3D dental models generated using these photographs were assessed alongside 3D models generated using a structured light scanner to determine their fidelity. The results of this research are presented the article "A critical assessment
of the potential for Structure-from-Motion photogrammetry to produce high
fidelity 3D Dental Models" under review in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. The paper aimed to determine whether dental models generated using photogrammetry could be used to perform dental macrowear analysis. All 3D models assessed, and the photographs used to generate the models, are available from the UCL research data repository.
