"abstract": "<p>We present here an original Virtual Reality (VR) application for navigating an archaeological database. The Activity Theory is drawn&nbsp;on to describe the use of the immersive tool, which was developed&nbsp;in the context of an archaeological research project. Based on the&nbsp;observation of researchers interacting with the tool and their verbal&nbsp;expression, we show that the efficiency of technology use and&nbsp;activities depends on the removal of technical obstacles but also&nbsp;on the interaction of three components: the subject, the objective&nbsp;and the tool. The activities, which seem the most relevant produce&nbsp;results that affect one or more of the three components. It seems&nbsp;that activity theory is a relevant tool to analyze the use of this kind&nbsp;of technology, VR, to visualize a database. Finally, we present lines&nbsp;of thought for digital humanities.</p>\n\n<p>This publication is a part of ANR project Schopper :&nbsp;<a href=\"http://schopper-anr.org/shopper-wp/\">http://schopper-anr.org/</a></p>",
