Today, Dr. Don Linebaugh from the University of Maryland brought a group of students to Ash Grove in Tysons Corner. The students are from the Anthropology, Architecture, and Historic Preservation programs and surveyed the kitchen using 3D scanning technology.
Some of their work was decidedly less high tech. Detailed documentation of the oven inside the kitchen required students to literally climb into the feature. In the future, hopefully the data can be processed and put online so people can walk through Fairfax County’s past, virtually.
