Abstract. The paper presents in detail the method used to acquire 2D and 3D representations for the Large Tower of the Roman fortress from Noviodunum (Isaccea, Tulcea County). The available implements were a total station, a digital camera and some software for handling data. The method is not new by any rate, but well fitted to the aims – recording archaeological data on ruined but massif walls, with rough surfaces – and with a limited budget. Lately considered as a low cost procedure, laser scanning is still costly and rare in some East-European countries. Our method, as simple as it is, provides reliable data as a 3D survey, along texture details, at the lowest price, on unfinished fieldwork, preserving and picturing a stage of knowledge about the site and the architectural bodies.
