National Museum Wales, 2002 - Archaeology - 48 pages
0 Reviews
Reconstruction of the past has a long history and continues to take a number of different forms; from drawings and paintings, to models, replicas, re-enactments, facial reconstruction and computer modelling. This book is part history and part guide to the process of recreating the past in two- and three-dimensions, explaining how artists of each period represented the past, what social and political agendas were being played out, and how archaeological data is interpreted and transformed into an image. The many examples shown here are taken largely from the pioneering, collaborative work carried out by the National Museum and Galleries of Wales and CADW.
