The impact that light -natural or flame- has in the interior of a structure has a direct relation to its intended content. Houses, working spaces, open areas, religious buildings and other facilities, are all distinctively lit, showing that the involvement of light in architecture is a complex phenomenon which permeates everyday practices. The reconstruction of archaeological sites in the third dimension, not only offers a different perception of the ancient structures, but also, these 3D models can be used for further analyses thus providing a better examination and consequently, interpretation and narration of the past. The purpose of this session is to highlight the importance of virtual reconstructions in archaeological research, especially concerning the estimation of lighting values
in ancient structures and the importance of considering natural and flame light in past environments for the interpretative process. Technical issues related to the physical accuracy of the lighting sources used will be discussed.
