Over the past two decades, visualisation and recording technologies have significantly impacted how scholars perceive and interact with archaeological information. In particular, introducing new visualisation techniques and devices has allowed researchers to experience new ways of simulating the past, creating the conditions for discussing new theoretical frameworks and addressing further research questions. Although archaeologists and heritage professionals are only beginning to realise the potential of these applications in the heritage sector, experiments in 3D visualisation have demonstrated how three-dimensional data can provide heritage practitioners with more efficient tools for analysing and interpreting the past.
This talk will discuss the potential, limitations and future developments of 3D visualisation systems as a medium for analysing and discussing archaeological interpretation.
