The activation of ancient vessel-fragments is a time consuming but important task for archaeologists. The basis for classification and reconstruction is the profile which is the cross-section of the fragment in the direction of the rotational axis of symmetry. Hence the position of a fragment (orientation) on a vessel is important. In this work the estimation of the axis of rotation out of range data by using a Hough inspired method is proposed. In order to avoid outliers a robust method for estimation of the axis is used. Classification and reconstruction are performed in a bottom-up manner using a description language, which holds all features of the fragment as primitives and all properties among features as relations. Classification of newly found fragments of unknown type is performed by comparing the description of the new fragment with the description of already classified fragments by completing graph similarity. The sub-graph with the highest similarity is then used to reconstruct the complete vessel out of the fragment
