The Reconstruction of the Ancient Theater of Philippopolis
MetadataShow full item record
The reconstruction of the Theater of Philippopolis was created to further the academic study of Roman provincial architecture, specifically theaters, using 3D modeling and augmented reality technologies. Data for the model was obtained from a combination of archaeological surveys, epigraphic evidence, and Google-sourced images and was compiled into an original 3D model. The 3D model of the Theater of Philippopolis was created in the SketchUp Pro software released by Trimble Inc. The completed model shows what the Theater of Philippopolis would have looked like between 100 and 400 CE. The model serves as an example of the ability to create archaeological and historical models for a variety of uses including education, disability outreach, preservation, and conservation.
