DRAWING FOR RECONSTRUCTION


Drawing for reconstruction is seen (snobbishly) as a down market activity, and part of the conspiracy of course is that it takes much intelligence, much research and a powerful capacity to visualise. It can be done in drawn form or as a photo/film reconstruction (see beneath). Watch Victor Ambrus on TIME TEAM to see these great powers - what a huge felicity of drawing. Smoke, windows, and, above hands, drawn with invention and ease. Sure beats the camera's pursuit of flint chips in mud.
