Direct Dimensions to Participate in CAA 2009 "Making History Interactive" in Williamsburg, VA in March

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and The University of Virginia are hosting the 37th annual international conference on Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) to be held from March 22-26, 2009 in Williamsburg, Virginia. Direct Dimensions, Inc. is proud to support this event as the Exhibitors and Workshop chair.

This year’s conference theme will be “Making History Interactive,” which will be reflected in both the conference activities and the unique venue. As an organization, CAA is dedicated to the application of digital technologies that make it possible to access and investigate our cultural heritage in new ways. Using digital technologies, archaeologists can interact with the historical record, to push the boundaries of interpretation and further our understanding of the past.

Williamsburg served as the capital of Virginia from 1699 to 1780 and today is the site of the nation’s largest outdoor living history museum. Founded in 1926, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation seeks to engage people in the exploration of the revolutionary events and ideals that led to the establishment of a new nation. In addition to the standard conference activities, attendees will be able to participate in workshops and courses related to digital applications, take behind-the-scenes tours to learn how history is made interactive, and experience what life was like in the 18th century.

Exhibitor space is still available for this conference.
