Archaeology research. Researcher entering data for a model of a cemetery and the items discovered there during archaeological excavations. The items on the piece of paper (right) are recorded on the scan seen on the screen. The data will be used to build a virtual reality model of the cemetery to allow virtual exploration of the site. This is the Certosa Cemetery, in Bologna, Italy, founded in 1801. Excavations in 1869 by the Italian archaeologist Antonio Zannoni, uncovered an earlier set of burials, an Etruscan necropolis with 420 tombs dating to the 4th and 6th centuries BC. This work on Zannoni's original discoveries is being carried out by CINECA, the inter-University consortium of Bologna.
