Virtual Archaeology in Second Life and OpenSimulator
Keywords:Virtual archaeology, Second Life, Virtual Worlds, OpenSimulator, heritage
AbstractTraditional approaches to virtual archaeology include dealing with research methods to capture information from heritage sites, creating models out of that information and how to present them to the public; these are intense technical procedures which might be too costly for some types of history or heritage-based projects. Virtual worlds allowed new types of models of/for heritage sites to be produced and disseminated at a fraction of the cost.
