Through computer reconstruction, a model of an archaeological site may be created from a variety of data and studied, examined and compared as if it were the real thing. Dr. Richard Levy built a computer model of the ancient temple at Phimai, Thailand, initially as an educational tool for Thai students. As vividly demonstrated here through a virtual tour of this dazzling World Heritage Site, the computer modeling of the Phimai temple serves to show the potential of this technique for archaeologists everywhere.
