In Slovenia, some rich archaeological sites with remains from the ancient Roman era can be found. As an example of such a site, the ancient town of Celeia should be mentioned. Remains of this ancient town are located in the area of today’s city of Celje. In 1978, during an archaeological research, remains of a Roman villa from the third century were found while an inn then named Turška Mačka was being demolished. Among other finds, an incredibly large number of wall painting fragments were discovered on the site. In 1989, these fragments of various sizes, colours and patterns were delivered to the Ljubljana Restoration Centre. Because of the inappropriate conditions and limited workspace at that time, an attempt to reassemble the fragments was unsuccessful. Since the fragments exhibited unique motifs and a well-preserved condition, the project was resumed in 2009, applying a completely new approach. In an effort to provide a comprehensive overview of the fragments and accelerate the process of reassembling the original painting, a decision was made to digitize the fragments and develop computer support. A program developed for recording the fragments and supporting the process of reassembly, as well as the mobile version of the program, proved to be very useful. However, certain shortcomings were also discovered – mainly during the phase of actual reassembly.
