This paper assesses the advantages of the virtual reconstruction of archaeological structures, taking advantage of new, easily employed and readily available software. The paper reports the analysis of a Chalcolithic structure from upland Sicily. Architectural details were assembled from the study of the drystone ground-plan and analysis of daub impressions, followed by comparative study of broadly contemporary structures. It is emphasised that software can now be employed to analyse relatively simple archaeological evidence, much enhancing our knowledge of the reconstruction process. In a CD or web-based format, a wide range of alternative reconstructions can be presented for assessment by the reader.
