Abstract. The paper presents the results of 3D modelling in the Lusatian Borough, Biskupin, using archival data. Pre-war photographs acquired from different heights, e.g., from a captive balloon (maximum height up to 150 m), from a blimp (at a height of 50–110 m) and from an aeroplane (at a height of 200 m, 300 m and up to 3 km). In order to generate 3D models, AgiSoft tools were applied, as they allow for restoring shapes using triangular meshes. Individual photographs were processed using Google SketchUp software and the "shape from shadow" method. The usefulness of these particular models in archaeological research work was also analysed.
