    ABSTRACT

    The Paspahegh Project is a reconstruction of an Algonquian Indian village in seventeenth-century Virginia. It is a collaborative venture involving an historian, computer programmer, a visual artist and two public school teachers and their students. The project joins the latest technologies and visualization techniques to textual, cartographic, and archaeological evidence to produce a virtual reality model of the village for teachers, students, and the general public. The model will be published on the Virtual Jamestown web site and, funding permitting, rendered in the form of an educational game for distribution in DVD format.
