Description Central Europe suffers lately from serious water deficits. Contemporary society is dealing with this problem in several ways. One of them is building water dams, especially in forested areas. These areas often contain medieval and early modern relics of defunct water dams, that could be reused for such purposes again by incorporating them in the new dams. Proper archaeological documentation and cooperation between archaeologists and landowners then results in virtual photogrammetric documentation. Thus, creating 3D resources available for future research, presentation, and education. Thanks to long-term research of the Rokštejn Castle and its economical hinterland (e.g. villages) these structures can not only be identified in the historical landscape, but can also be better protected against poor spatial planning, that often does not take historical landscape into account. One of the results of our ongoing project – Sustainable development of cultural landscape and protection of historic monuments in a forested environment – is a database of these anthropogenic relics for the members of the wider public, especially for land owners and construction companies.
