This lecture will be presented by Nicholas Picardo, Research Associate at Harvard University, Dept. of Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations. The presentation will explore new applications of 3D graphic reconstruction currently being undertaken by The Giza Project at Harvard. "From royal pyramid complexes and mastaba tombs to the landscape of the Giza Plateau itself, 3D modeling dramatically expands the prospects for understanding the site through its history, for testing modern theories about ancient activity, and even for producing new data that work together with on-the-ground archaeology. These research and developmental processes will be explained through examples of The Giza Project’s graphic models along with a discussion about how such pursuits create opportunities to not just visualize but also to experience ancient settings in innovative and promising ways."
