Accurate light simulation is of highest importance in archaeological reconstructions when you want to investigate how a site might have looked like in the past. Failure to use the highest fidelity means there is a very real danger of misrepresenting the past. This sketch describes the high fidelity reconstruction and realistic lighting simulation of an ancient Egyptian temple.
