Visualizing a Wired World’s Past: Digital and Tactile Public Archaeology in the Virtual Curation Laboratory (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Bernard Means.

Used effectively, these 3D digital artifact models can help cultural heritage institutions share their amazing discoveries to a global audience and not simply to their fixed geographic locations. How to share these 3D digital artifact models to an audience wider than undergraduate students and professional archaeologists has proven...
