During the field mission of September-October 2021, which aimed at creating high-quality digital documentation package using latest technologies and equipment, like terrestrial laser scanners, electronic tachymeters, etc., three traditional Bukharian Jewish houses were surveyed. Further surveys are anticipated to be made during the 2022 summer field season.
