This AR app aims to establish an interactive hiking experience. The app accompanies the 70K, recently excavated Sanhedrin trail, which connects several archeological sites of Jewish settlements from the 2nd Century BC at the Galil area in Northern Israel. Through the app's interface, hikers gain access to digital models of archeological reconstructions of the sites and learn about the natural environment of the area.

. In this category, digital visualizations of an assumed past are imposed onto a relevant physical location, such as an archeological site. The virtual content in this case does not directly represent indexical archival materials, such as documents or photos, but rather it is a result of processing research materials and thus it reflects an educated assumption about the past in-situ.
