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.
