Medieval Church and Glass Manufacturing Workshop

The archaeological site and the ruins in the Nagykovácsi plain of Pomáz, which were still recognizable in the 19th century, have long been known to the medieval researchers, but opinions diverge on the remains’ identity and functions. Some argued that a Cistercian monastery, a Pauline monastery or a rural parish church might have stood in this place.

The excavations in 2011-2012 revealed a church of the Árpád era, built of sculpted stone. Significant remnants of the single nave and shrine-enclosed semi-circular church were discovered, mainly at the western façade. Despite the new age stone mining, the floor plan of the church can be recognized in all details. The temple was surrounded by a medieval cemetery, a few graves of which have also been excavated. Explorations started to unearth a large (20 × 10 m) wing, one of the workshop buildings, which were surrounding the church in a "U" shape. Medieval glass manufacture products, molten pieces of glass and specially designed building blocks of glass furnaces were discovered in a thick layer of filling in the area between the building and church.

Under the SziMe 3D sub-projects we have repeatedly scanned the discovered temple walls and the glass manufacturing workshop. We created a point cloud version suitable for processing further under the guidance of experts in architecture and history.

We measured some typical pieces of glass furnaces and glass artifacts with manual surface scanner, and on the basis of that it is possible to reconstruct the glass products manufactured here.
