Travel Through Time: Rome Reborn

The University of Virginia's Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities has created an amazing 3D walk through of ancient Rome. Ten years in the making, it recreates what Rome looked like in 320 AD, at the time of the great Emperor Constantine. Parts of Rome Reborn version 1.0 are now available online, including views of the Colosseum, Forum, Basilica Maxentius, and panoramic views of the city.

Maybe they'll put in on Second Life so people can have their avatars walk through ancient Rome and get in gladiator fights. But don't expect to see me on there. My First Life is interesting enough for me.
