Despite its significance in history and popular imagination, the city of Gordion today offers very little to be seen. The level of preservation and restricted access to the site obscure the city. Contemporary visitors can see little of what is there, and even less of what has been. Digital reconstruction of the site can compensate for these shortcomings and help non-experts see the architecture of the site as studied and imagined by the experts. This study deals with how the possibilities of digital modeling can be exploited in order to present a richer and more accurate picture of Gordion. Besides detailed and realistic images of a site, digital visualization can display how these images were generated from factual evidence and its interpretation. Cinema offers the model for this work in telling complex yet comprehensible stories by audio-visual means.
