Visual and spatial technologies are revolutionising how archaeology and many other disciplines understand the past and the contemporary world. From digital objects to landscapes, through geophysics, GIS and the creation of virtual worlds, new technology provides alternative routes to seeing and understanding both past and present.


The Visual and Spatial Technology Centre (VISTA), at the University of Birmingham (UK), supports academic research and application development for spatial analysis, visualisation and imaging using state-of-the-art technology in one of the best-equipped archaeological visualisation laboratories in Europe. Centre staff use the unparalleled opportunities of VISTA for research, postgraduate and professional training in archaeology, the Humanities and associated sciences.
