Binchester in Second Life

One of the principal investigators on the Durham-Stanford Binchester Research Project is Dr Gary Devore, who amongst other research interests is exploring the potential for Virtual Reality can be used to present information about the Roman world. Using the virtual world platform of Second Life he has created a fantastic reconstruction of the bath-house at Binchester. There is also a more extended exploration of the way in which Second Life is being used to present the Roman past. It all looks fabulous. All I want now is a virtual Bincheste I can upload into Rome:Total War!
