Lower molar rows of anatomically modern humans generated using a GOM ATOS 80 structured light scanner. Individuals are from St. Michael's Litten, Chichester, post-medieval assemblage (AD1550-1900). Each file is named according to its specimen number.
The specimen numbers correspond to the skeleton numbers of each individual. The site code for St. Michael's Litten is ESC11. These 3D dental models generated using a structured light scanner were used as reference models to determine the fidelity of 3D models generated using structure-from-motion photogrammetry. 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.
