Carnuntum - a virtual tour

A virtual tour through archaeological park Carnuntum.
In 3 languages: English, German, Latin.
The ancient city of Carnuntum
is situated about 40km east of Vienna, Austria. From the 1st to the 4th century AD, Carnuntum developed gradually to become the central Roman military, administrative and trade base along the middle reaches of the Danube and became one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire.
In 1996 the Archaeological Park Carnuntum Betriebsgesellschaft took over the management of the site with the aim of developing programmes and products for certain groups in order to offer visitors history that comes alive.
Up to now, visitors to Carnuntum had to use their own imagination to get a feeling for ancient Roman life. Remains of residential and commercial buildings as well as public baths and temples only gave an idea of life in Roman Carnuntum.
In 1999 a multimedia project was commissioned that would breathe virtual life into Carnuntum. The project was realized by MULTIMEDIAPLAN.AT and IF?R - Departement for local planning at Vienna University of Technology.
Following analogous reconstruction plans and the archaeological instructions of the Head of Excavations in Carnuntum, Franz Humer, Carnuntum was first depicted as a digital 3D model. The public areas as well as the private quarters of ancient Carnuntum wer constructed as realistically as possible, using excavated objects, interior decorations and the original fabrics where available.
The multimedia project Carnuntum was created using CAD- and Animation-Software and Quicktime Virtual Reality (QTVR). The resulting scenes were combined with stills, texts and video clips.
