Archaeology students in the Hebrew University in Israel are using 3D scanning to artificially complete broken vases as well as better understand the way tools were made in the past, and comparing dimensions of masks to a human face.

3D scan of the artifact provides the most realistic way of portraying it in 3D.
The use of 3D software allows better understanding of how the tool was made, which angles the maker hit the stone and how it was held.
Measurements made in 3D programs can be compared to a real life human face.
