Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Tour Pompeii…

leave a comment »

I was in Italy many years ago,  but did not get to Pompeii,  a place long on my bucket list.   I don’t suppose I’ll ever actually get there,  but  this 3-D tour of one of the ruined houses is a splendid substitute for having aching feet and coping with hordes of other tourists.

Experts have been documenting the city since 1980,  and Swedish researchers have used the latest digital technology to recreate what the home of one of the richer citizens looked like before Mount Vesuvius destroyed the city.   Welcome to the new science of digital archaeology!
