ARCE: International Archaeology Day Celebration with Dr. Galina Belova and Nicholas Picardo

The Mystery of ‘White Walls’: New Discoveries of Memphis
Presented by Dr. Galina Belova, Director of the Russian Egyptological Institute in Cairo

Digital Giza: Visualizing Archaeological Archives in Context
Presented by Nicholas Picardo, Associate Director of the Giza Project at Harvard University

This presentation explores the interplay of old records from museums and excavations with newer technologies, not only for research purposes but also in service of cultural heritage preservation, appreciation, and education. The Giza Project is a collaborative international initiative based at Harvard University. Its goals include the collection, electronic organization and preservation, scholarly study, and public presentation of data on Giza: the pyramids, their surrounding cemeteries, and their associated settlements. The Project has assembled and interlinked the largest electronic archive of Giza archaeological records ever created. Digital Giza, the Project’s website (currently under construction), aims to integrate this more than 100 years of Giza documentation with Giza 3D, the Project’s virtually reconstructed Giza environment. Together, the Giza Project’s archival database, Giza 3D, and Digital Giza are the foundations for developing new interactive ways to experience the archaeology of Giza, including virtual and augmented reality apps, 3D printing of ancient artifacts, and online educational initiatives.
