Some applications of computer graphics to archeology are described. One project involved making a solid model of part of the Roman temple excavated at Bath, England, and its surroundings, comprising the Temple of Sulis Minerva, its precinct with surrounding colonnade, the Facade of the Four Seasons, and the barrel-roofed bathhouse that formerly enclosed what is now called the King's Bath. This model was constructed using a newly developed ray caster called DORA (divided object-space ray-casting algorithm). A second model was done of the Roman Fortress Baths in Caerleon, Wales. A quantity of archaeological graphics, both reconstructions and displays of data such as resistivity results, were also produced.<>
