Next week's seminar

One focus of next weeks seminar is immersive virtual environments and the ways they are used in setting up interactions with heritage.  On this topic, I would like to add a reading that deals with virtual representations of archaeological sites in the present (rather than in the speculated past) as a means of improving interpretation and understanding of the site.  I think this article can contribute a different angle to discussions on the importance of immersion as well as the idea of accuracy/authenticity of representation.   The article can be found at http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpls/abs_all.jsp?arnumber=6743761
and the doi is 10.1109/DigitalHeritage.2013.6743761
And it is also searchable by title on Google scholar.

Sorry folks, seems like you need to be on campus wi-fi to get this article from google scholar. Otherwise you need to go look on the libraries website under the database IEEE Xplore
