Research project: Virtual reality in archaeology

Currently Active: 

This project aims to develop novel computing solutions to the modelling, representation and interpretation of space in the archaeological past. Current work is concentrated on sites in Spain and Egypt, where virtual reality is used to explore life and experience in Roman towns.

Our virtual reality research has also approached our understanding of sites such as Avebury, where computer modelling provides a unique appreciation of the site and its context.

Other related work is concerned with representation of past spaces through animation and reconstruction stills, particularly in the fields of television and film.
