ICTs cannot compare tothe emotion felt during of a physical visit to a cultural site, but they can provide a new way of accessing such resources and, thus improve the visitors' experience, support people who cannot travel, facilitate joint research by scientists working in different laboratories, and facilitate the preservation and restoration of ancient artefacts.
