Abstract: In the last decade, the diffusion of 3D spatial technology has strongly affected the interpretation process undertaken by archaeologists and cultural heritage specialists working with material culture. The possibility to visually analyze in three dimensions complex archaeological environments provides scholars with the opportunity to experience new ways to engage with material culture. By presenting different archaeological projects undertaken by the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Lund University, this talk will discuss how this approach allowed the identification of information impossible to detect with more traditional methods from the perspective of visualization and temporal reasoning.
