Sclwlarlv analysis of the rhetorical power of the architecture and dec~ration of the domus has largely overlooked the role of the garden within this context. It is generally assumed that the(More)
This paper explores the consequences of using the game engine Unity to construct 3-D models of Pompeian houses, linked to art and spatial databases, as an ongoing research colloquium for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the humanities. Rather than serving as a neutral piece of visualization software, the game engine functions as critical tool(More)
