Tongeren

On-site experience description

From the end of 2020, we will show in augmented and virtual reality the reconstruction of a selection of Roman and medieval buildings excavated beneath and around the church of Our Lady. We focus on the interior and exterior of the fourth century Roman basilica, the sixth century Merovingian church and the Carolingian and Ottonian churches. With the 3D-reconstructions, flythrough imagery and 360° views we want to recreate a feeling of the Roman and medieval heart of the city. This story blends perfectly with the narratives presented in the Teseum and Gallo-Roman Museum.

To make sure that the reconstructions are as historically correct as possible we focus to a large degree on the interpretation of the historical and archeological data. This scientific research, its translation to the public and an inspiring on site experience are the keywords of this project.
