The Development of an Idea
Our special interest is the presentation of archaeological information to the public using modern technologies and moving images (Walkshofer and Dobat 2005). At the Limes Congress in Newcastle in 2009 we presented the film The Limes on the River Main. This film was designed to present the different forts of the Main Limes and its archaeological remains through the website www.museen-mainlimes.de. The challenge was to create a short 13-minute film that could be watched in sequences so that web designers could link a specific archaeological site directly to the corresponding sequence in the film.
