A historian and historical archaeologist by training, Jarvis’ digital research included 3D capture and analysis of the archaeology sites he digs each summer in Bermuda and the Virtual St. George’s project, which aims to digitally reconstruct Bermuda’s first capital at various years in the 17th through 19th centuries.
