This testbed shows the synthesis of 70 years of extensive research on the site of Ename, Belgium. Focus of the attention are the site of the Saint Salvator abbey, which was used for about nine centuries, and the near settlement of Ename, which was already inhabited in ancient time due to its fortunate position.

The content used in this testbed is the result of interpreting a large body of multidisciplinary research, spanning a period of about 70 years. The interpretation process, based upon 3D, is ongoing for 15 years, yielding a 4D model that spans 16 periods, from 980 to 2004 AD, and is supported by a multidisciplinary team of experts (archaeology, history, hydrography, historical landscape, …) and many scientific publications.
