"In the past, teams of scientists and archaeologists spent years evaluating what monuments may have looked like in the past, and they putting together data piece by piece. Now with the help of 21-century technology, archeologists can get an idea of what that structure looked like through visual effects. Through these recreations it is possible that a society will gain more pride and respect for the traditions and people from a certain time period, or it could bring viewers back 200 years to a place that is impossible to be in and perhaps audiences may perceive the historical greatness."
