Once an archaeological dig has been completed, artists’ imaginative reconstructions play an important role in the process of developing a coherent picture of the site and communicating this interpretation to experts, students and the general public. Through an exploration of seven illustrators’ approaches to the task, including analysis of their working sketches, Dobie reveals the extent to which such artistic visualizations can complement scientific data and encourage new and vivid ways of seeing and understanding the world of our ancestors.
