The use of Augmented and Virtual Reality in cultural heritage has increased dramatically in recent years, with uses that go far beyond creating and displaying digital reconstructions for museum visitors and tourists. This paper describes the collaboration between Archimedes Digital and the Contrada Agnese Project (CAP) to develop a framework and suite of applications to support the examination display of archaeological data from the site of Morgantina, Sicily in VR and AR. Primary purposes of this digital approach include facilitating collaboration between CAP’s specialists (archaeological, geospatial, and museum), and enabling the effective dissemination of data to researchers and to the general public.
