3D models are a useful tool in studying ancient landscapes, architecture, excavation layers and objects. Popularly used in outreach projects, breathing life back into ancient ruins or presenting museum objects to an online public, digital reconstructions are also helpful in a wide range of research objectives, from perceptions of space to iconographical analysis.
