De la reconstrucción tradicional a la virtual. Una visión desde la Arqueología.

José Manuel Rodríguez Hidalgo


This paper, that starts out from the multidiscplinarity of modern archaeological practice, which is highly computerised and technical, presents a very succint overview and analysis of the graphic representation that has been undertaken on the monuments of antiquity. From the re-edition of the treatise De Architectura by M Vitruvius down to the present-day three-dimensional reconstructions, which permit virtual visits, a multitude of reconstructions have been created, each of which is conditioned by the technical and aesthetic criteria of their day. Some have been strictly technical, while others were based upon drawings and paintings, both allows a two-dimensional image to be presented. Models, which are the greatest exponent of three-dimensionality, down to the present-day virtual reconstructions have also been created.
