This paper presents and discusses the work and objectives developed within the ongo-ing project Digital Time-travels: New strategies for archaeology and cultural heritage management? The work is focused on the development of new methods for the presentation and publication of archaeological data, particularly the use and effectiveness of digital methods for the presentation of archaeological information to the public. This in-volves cooperation with museums and other institutions as well as with the general public to develop useful and meaningful models of past landscapes and site-contexts with the purpose of augmenting and stimulating public awareness of archaeological remains. This paper presents our work with models visualizing landscape develop-ment and with the design and construction of an interactive interface for mediation and communication of archaeological information through computer-terminals in-stalled as part of museum displays, and through the Internet. The project is funded by the Swedish National Heritage Board and is organized as a joint venture between the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Goth-enburg University, the Department of Architecture at Chalmers University of Tech-nology and the Department of Soil Sciences at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
