Archaeology in Virtual Reality (VR)

Description

Are you interested in exploring an ancient archaeological site? What about an ancient site that is thousands of kilometers from here?  We invite you to join any of our upcoming workshops that use Virtual Reality (VR) to enable you to visit an ancient site in the country of Armenia!  Armenia is part of the ancient Near East and north of Mesopotamia, a broader region where the first agriculture, states, and writing occurred thousands of years ago. 
 

In our VR tour, you will visit the site of the Vedi Fortress in Armenia, with a virtual reconstruction of this castle’s walls and other features.  Your tour will be guided by students who have helped to excavate the site.  These workshops are open to anyone in the public, but we particularly invite families with children of any age to attend.  
 

We hope to share our site with many children!  In VR, you will see other participants as avatars on the virtual site. All workshops are exactly the same, so you can attend any.  The experience can take between 10 and 30 minutes.  

 

This event is for all ages and open to everyone, and participation is free of charge. Children are especially invited. Walk-ins are always welcome!
