Boston HUBweek - Giza 3D: Visualizing the Pyramids


Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 1:00pm to 2:00pm


Cabot Science Library, 1 Oxford St, Cambridge, MA 02138

As part of the Giza Project at Harvard, a 3D, archaeologically accurate computer model of the pyramids, tombs, and temples at the famous Giza Pyramids, just west of modern Cairo, is being used for teaching and research. The work is largely based on the excavations of the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition (1905–1947). This talk will show the computer model, and present other experiments in new technologies for bringing the site back to life, for scholars, students, and the public worldwide.
