Al-Attili, Aghlab and Mendoza-Robles, Rosa-Maria (2007) 'Digitizing Heritage or reconstructing Imagination.' In: Mercado, Maganda and Gomez, Adriana, (eds.), Sigradi 2007: La Comunicación en la Comunidad Visual. Cuidad de Mexico, Mexico: SIGraDI, pp. 48-53.
To advance the theme of digital conservation of heritage and tie it to museums, we report on two case studies of digitising archaeological sites; the first is the remains of a typical Scottish Crannog typical of the sixth-century BC., and the second is a UNESCO protected site in the Middle East (the desert castle of Qusayr Amra, Jordan), which dates back to early 8th century. Then we relate both to our investigation into embodiment, interaction and metaphor in virtual environments.
