project description. 

Ever since the first archaeological excavations in the history of mankind, "cultural treasure troves" around the world have been filled with an astonishing number of archaeological findings - but unfortunately, the vast majority of them has to be kept behind closed doors in deposits and archives. All the museums in the world could not exhibit them at once, even if they wanted to. Thus, they remain hidden not only from the eyes of the public, but also from those of archaeologists, who can only resort to photographs or drawings of the objects for their work.
The Virtual Reality based Ostia Forum Virtual Deposit allows not only to look at such archaeological objects, but to "take them in one's hand", explore their provenance and learn about their meaning and background. In the prototypical application, 12 virtual objects - physically stored in the actual Ostia Antica archive in Rome-Ostia - can be accessed interactively.
