I know that this properly belongs on the arch-list, but I am not a member.
Is anyone aware of a computer program that (i) simulates the process of
excavation in 3-dimensions, and/or (ii) enables the plotting of artifacts,
features, etc., in three-dimensional space, e.g., a trench. This could
extend to programs that are used in the field and lab as well as programs
that might have value in the classroom.

I know of a computer person who is an archaeology buff, and is thinking
about designing such a program.
