The development of three-dimensional representations of archaeological stratigraphical units and the representation of relationships between them was described as an “illusive goal” twelve years ago (Harris/ Lock 1996). This paper takes this statement as a challenge. It describes the current technical standard of OSS GIS (Open Source Software Geographic Information Systems) which are able to create volumetric, geo-referenced models of archaeological stratigraphy. In addition, the paper demonstrates the enhanced potential for archaeological post-excavation analysis of the new software prototype in comparison to 2D GIS analysis functionality. The applied OSS offers not only free access to the software itself but also provides the basis for further software improvements, which strive towards addressing archaeological questions directly via GIS.
