Authentic Illumination of Archaeological Site Reconstructions
  DOI :  10.2352/CGIV.2006.3.1.art00088  Published OnlineJanuary 2006

Computer reconstructions of heritage sites provide us with a means of visualising past environments, allowing us a glimpse of the past that might otherwise be difficult to appreciate. However, it is essential that these reconstructions incorporate all the physical evidence for the site, otherwise there is a very real danger of misrepresenting the past. A key feature when reconstructing past environments is authentic illumination. This paper discusses some key issues which must be considered when reconstructing the past.
