I do not know of any other VR archaeological reconstruction which is at the same time so historically accurate and so lively and easy to use. This is particularly true if we consider the Roman Forum in particular. My claim is based on a study I presented for the 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology (Cologne/Bonn, Germany 22nd – 26th May 2018), in which I compared all the 3D reconstructions of the Roman Forum developed in the last 20 years. Rome Reborn’s reconstruction was by far the best

Upon the release of the Roman Forum I immediately tested the app in my courses on the discipline of Classical archaeology and the history of Rome. At the end of each class’ visit to the Forum I had the students don the visors while still on-site, positioning them in a location corresponding to a viewing station in the app. The results were very promising: in the vast majority of cases the reaction upon seeing the ancient structures with their correct scale, materials, and decorations was a gasp of amazement (in some cases a mild start) followed by an exclamation along the lines of “We’ve been studying these things for days/weeks, but still I had no idea that they looked like this or were so colorful/tall/beautiful!”

The Rome Reborn apps are extremely high-quality restorations of ancient Rome, with excellent documentary information. The quality of the VR is very high (none of my students has complained of any issues with motion sickness). I recommend them with great enthusiasm as they bring ancient Rome to life in living color to teachers, students, and lovers of ancient Rome.
