Abstract or Description
Recent developments in computer graphics and interactive techniques are providing powerful tools for modeling multi-dimensional aspects of data gathered by archaeologists. This course addresses the problems associated with reconstructing archaeological and heritage sites with computer systems and evaluating the realism of the resultant models. The crucial questions: are the results misleading, and are we in fact misinterpreting the past.
