Virtually Yours

A 3d simulation of ancient Rome has been constructed after 10 years of work. The neat thing is that the simulation can show the different time spans of Rome – from late Bronze Age to its fall in the 6th century. Apparently students and tourists will be able to use the simulation, although its primary function is for scientific and architectural study. I’ve seen the ruins and I’d love to see how they’ve constructed the simulation. I wish I could take a look at it!
