To a certain extent, human perception is able to compen-sate for visual incompleteness. However, if the incomplete-ness exceeds a certain degree, perception remains frag-mentary. Digital or material supplements offer a remedy here; they serve as cognitive tools that can support the understanding of historical facts. But they may influence the impression of the authenticity of a historical object or building. Furthermore, additions represent more or less verifiable interpretations that viewers are often not aware of and this can lead to false conclusions.
