Description The aim of the paper is to point out a student project which is supportedby the O2 SmartUp Foundation, and which aims at the new methods ofpopularizing archaeology not only as a science but also as the archaeologicalfieldwork itself. Under the term “method of popularization”, we understandsummary of scientific-popular ways of presentation which are used to showarchaeological research of the deserted village Mstěnice (Hrotovice, regionVysočina). Although the village was explored a long time ago, it still stays outof well-deserved attention of the public. The framework of the method liesmainly in the use of 3D visualization based on archaeological publications,plans and the fragments of foundations on the site. These remains weredocumented by the “Structure from Motion” method and creates the base of 3D models of the site. The objectives of the project, however, are not limitedto the 3D, but rather, they try to go beyond these boundaries and presentresearch as a story that Mstěnice site undeniably has. On the other hand, theresulting method is designed to be used for other research, particularly rescue,for which it could offer an alternative way of transmitting information to theinvestor.
