Virtual Reality and 3D Modelling
Data dissemination and education
Since 2005 the Archaeological Department of Chartres has conducted numerous activities in the metropolitan area and outside. One of the missions of the department is to present to the public the archaeological results using various media (articles in the city’s monthly magazine, newspapers, exhibitions, conferences etc.), in order to justify its activity. 3D modelling is a simple way to report archaeological observations and assumptions. Modelling tools have been applied to research on different periods (antiquity, middle ages and modern times), different scales: individual archaeological structures (kilns, graves, etc.), archaeological sites (Gallo-Roman villas and shrines, Merovingian hamlets, etc.) up to the size of a city. Virtual reconstructions can also be used to test scientific assumptions, particularly in architecture (Merovingian pit houses, for example).
