Past Time, Past Place: 3D Reconstruction Modeling for Examining Historic Sites

Share

March 2, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

  |   | Free


Archaeologists and historians are utilizing improving 3D technologies to create scholarly reconstructions of ancient places. These visualizations of now-disappeared spaces offer new potential for the examination of the ancient world. In this talk, Professor Sullivan will present her work on the 3D Saqqara project, a 3D visualization of the Egyptian necropolis of Saqqara. The project attempts to re-imagine the built and natural environment of the cemetery through space and time, accessing human perception and experience in past landscapes.

Co-sponsored by the History and Classics Department and the Institute for Humanities Research.
