Beyond Virtual Reality: How do you authentically interpret archaeology?

As technology races forward, our understanding of the past deepens.

Among the many technological tools available, we can use virtual reality to recreate architecture and artefacts, when the archaeological remains don’t reveal the full story. But can immersive technology ever truly replace the sensory experience of the original?

Join Perkins+Will and guests for a panel debate that will discuss how museums can interpret archaeology authentically, bring history to life, and educate and inspire across generations.
