Wessex Archaeology has a team of illustrators who produce reconstructions and visualisations. From traditional watercolour or digital painting to 3D models and Virtual Reality, we can help.

Bringing archaeology to life

We can create urban and rural scenes depicting people and their surroundings throughout history, brought to life through cgi animation, artefact models, 3D printing, and high quality images for exhibitions and publications.

3D models are created using photogrammetry or (like the example below) from accurate measurements and carefully crafted texture maps. Artefact modelling can include virtual repairs to show objects in their original state.
