Digital Public Archaeology at Homol'ovi: The Arizona State Museum’s Contributions to the Digital Humanities
Author(s): Douglas Gann
Under the guidance of E. Charles Adams and Richard C. Lange, the Homol’ovi Research Program (HRP) was one of the first archaeological research programs in the southwest culture area to incorporate three-dimensional computer aided drafting (3D CAD) into their archaeological practice. By the adoption of a 3D modeling strategy, the HRP was able to foster concurrent developments in new media technologies to better share archaeological research with the general public. Through the use of 3D modeling of deposit-based archaeological data, digital conjectural reconstructions, animations, and even virtual reality applications have been utilized to both further the interpretation of the archaeological record and share this record with an interested public audience. The experiences resulting from this effort serve as a model of a variety of best practices and lessons learned for future research in digital public archaeology.
