Mount Olympus Project
This is one of the earliest heritage visualisations to make a clear distinction between surviving material evidence and hypothetical reconstruction. The project was concerned with digital reconstruction of the ancient temples of Zeus and Demeter whose remains have been excavated on Mount Olympus. Solid models of both temples were created and combined with images of the surviving ruins, which could be displayed by clicking on the model.
[Any further information about this project will be much appreciated.]
