ROMA Archaeology in the Second Life® World


A new interactive archaeology attraction has been built in ROMA, the ancient Roman estate in Second Life. Called "ROMA Archaeology" it is housed in the ROMA Transtiberim sim.

Ten stations are arranged around a large open trench. By visiting each of the stations, an avatar can participate in activities that will explain the basics of archaeological theory and method. There are also several free prizes to be won along the way.

All visitors arrive at a landing point that explains this is a "reconstruction of an archaeological site. Visit each station in order to find out what archaeologists do and why they do it."
