3D laser scanning technology demonstration

Reconstruction of Christ Church Tom Quad, Oxford 2010

This technology has been suggested to create 3D model (electronic reconstruction) of Qarahunge monument. Taking into account the complexity of the monument, this will be the best technique to study and reconstruct initial state of the monument. Special thanks to Leica Geosystems: Paul Burrows and Martin Edwards who made this video in 20 minutes to demonstrate the efficiency of the Leica products. Vaclav Potesil and Mihran Vardanyan assisted during the scanning procedure.

Note: The Cygnus (or the Swan constellation) is still visible from Qarahunge, although the absolute positions of the stars have changed as well as the relative position of the constellation. Simple way to check this is to use these +39° 33' 6.12", +46° 1' 44.33" coordinates in an astronomical program like stellarium or celestia. However there is a Cataclysmic pole shift hypothesis.

Dorians "Sleepless Nights" (Filmed at Qarahunge)

Dorians is an Armenian rock band.
Dorians is performing at Qarahunge (Zorats Karer, Carahuge). The video was first uploaded by Music of Armenia in December 2009 and was made about a year prior to the Oxford Expedition.
The video is unique as it features the site's spiritual side as well as its relevance to the site's name which translated means Sound of Stones.
