Archaeology Magazine has an article on digital archaeology and how the Internet is helping archaeologists study ancient sites.
A good example of digital archaeology is the work of a consortium of universities which is working with Google to recreate a digital version of ancient Rome as it appeared during the reign of Constantine the Great.
In a precious post I showed an example of Ancient Rome in 3D. The picture below shows the Circus Maximus, one of the 7,000 structures of ancient Rome, part of the Rome Reborn project, which digitally reconstructs how Rome appeared in A.D. 320.
