Archaeologist John Dobbins explains how advanced technology is helping art historians and architects better understand the most famous mosaic to survive from antiquity, the Alexander Mosaic at Pompeii. Using 3-D models, Dobbins illustrates the ancient viewing conditions that existed in the lavish Roman house where it was found, and the ways visitors may have discovered and engaged with this spectacular piece. This program is co-presented with the Archaeological Institute of America and the Ahmanson Foundation.
