ABSTRACT: Indiana University Professor Stephen Michael Vinson will discuss Virtual Heritage, the application of computer visualization to archaeological objects and sites. He will cite examples currently being undertaken on Egyptian material culture and will explore possibilities for the future. One of the most exciting new approaches in Egyptology relates to high-quality, three-dimensional digital models which suggest entirely novel possibilities for scholarship and teaching, such as the virtual restorations of damaged artifacts or the depiction of virtual environments, so that material culture can be visualized in its original context.
|ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Dr. Vinson is the Chair of the Department of Middle |
Eastern Languages and Cultures at Indiana University, Bloomington. Dr. Vinson focuses on ancient Egyptian language and literature as well as the history of Graeco-Roman and ancient Egyptian transportation and trade, particularly involving boats and ships. He has a special interest in new technologies in particular advanced computer visualization as an Egyptological tool.
Please enjoy ARCE’s podcast series. Here are the links:
A talk by Maggie Bryson that discusses the aftermath of the reign of Tutankhamun, what happened after his death as well as the lasting impacts of the Amarna period on Egypt. She discusses the role of the general Horemheb and the transition to the next Dynasty.
Nozomu Kawai explains the political situation during the reign of King Tutankhamun and highlights the most important women and men in his court. He also details the vast building program of the King and what could be his motives behind it.
This talk, by Dr. Aidan Dodson, discusses Tutankhamen’s family history, the DNA studies done on his mummy and some of the objects found in his tomb.
Dr. Salima Ikram discusses the tomb’s treasures and decorations, as well as the king’s mummy and what is unique about it.
We talk with Dr. Kenawi about the Amasili Project: the multidisciplinary conservation of an Ottoman-period house in the center of Rosetta. In addition to learning about its novel approach to heritage conservation, we discuss threats to heritage sites and consider some unanswered questions about Egypt’s last Ptolemaic rulers.
ARCE is hard at work preserving many sites in Egypt for future generations. Please take a look at virtual tours of some of these sites.
