Archaeology & Critical Gaming

Archaeology increasingly uses three-dimensional recordings of excavations, buildings and landscapes as well as virtual reality models to reconstruct developments over time. With the increasing power and popularity of 3DVR gaming systems, immersive environments become viable stages in which archaeological and historical theories can be tested. For academic purposes, it is extremely important to clarify how much of an immersive environment is based on actual data and what the level of speculation is used for the reconstruction of each detail and phase.
