Archaeology Turns to Virtual Reality

A Melbourne-based VR company has secured nearly $1 million in seed funding from investors. Lithodomos (which means stonemason in Ancient Greek) develops VR content that re-creates ancient architecture, allowing people to see what archaeological sites once looked like.

Their first commercial project will be working with Spain's University of Cordoba and the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness to re-create part of the Roman settlement of Mellaria in the Guadiato Valley, in the country's north.
