Beyond material culture: virtual ship reconstruction

Author(s): Tiago M Fraga

Year: 2013


In the case of virtual ship reconstruction, the boundaries between fiction and science are hard to define. In attempting a ship reconstruction, the freedom provided by computer-assisted endeavors often clashes with the limitations of the historical archaeology data. Drawing on the expertise derived from several case studies, some ground rules are proposed in the hope of locating the border between these two approaches that will keep proposed reconstructions in the realm of science.
