Bringing archaeology to the public in an accessible manner is one of PAR's ongoing commitments.

Visualizing Prehistoric Life
featuring The John Chapman Site (11Jd12) in Jo Daviess County, Illinois
In 2011, PAR produced visual interpretations of life at the John Chapman site as it existed over 850 years ago. Using 3D imagery and point-of-view photographs taken at the site, three large-format digital paintings were realized. Explore the inspiration behind our interpretations of prehistoric people and their way of life.
