summary Reconstructions of ancient and modern places, whether concrete or virtual, embody dynamic and varied relationships to the physical remains they represent. Further, they are situated in a complex, fluid dialectic between the modern moment in which the reconstruction is attempted and the previous time when the buildings or spaces were actually, originally created.In this paper, we are exploring the theoretical, pedagogical and practical issues raised by implanting these sorts of reconstructions in the context of an undergraduate, arts and letters university course. In particular, we will examine one aspect of this practice relevant to all facets of the use of reconstructions in teaching: communicating the nature of the evidence onwhich reconstructions are based.
