Abstract or description

Visual technology represents a powerful tool that can invoke a sense of
place in a virtual world and bring the results of archaeological surveys into public
consciousness. Such techniques are particularly useful when excavation is
impractical or not permitted. This chapter outlines the results of the investigations
on the site of the former labour camp of Lager Norderney in the Channel Islands.
In the past, opinions concerning the site have revolved around the perception that it
was destroyed. Archaeological survey has demonstrated that this is not the case
and the presentation of these findings through digital means has offered new
insights into their form, function and surviving extent without ground disturbance.
By employing a methodology that addresses all of the physical and cultural layers
associated with this painful period of history, it has been possible to generate
resources that mitigate against some of the issues surrounding the investigation of
the site.
