2013, we participated in one of the largest exhibitions about ancient Uruk ever made. We already reported in the same year about the exhibition and what it meant for us. It is now long gone, but recently, I read a post by the German Archaeological Institute (in German) about the virtualisation of that exhibition. Back […]
A couple months ago, I had a presentation about the reconstruction of Pi-Ramesse in Berlin, together with the excavator Henning Franzmeier. The lecture, that was organised by the Berliner Antiken Kolleg, was recorded and is now available on YouTube. If you speak German, you can listen and look at it right here.
This year, the excavations in Qantir/Pi-Ramesse get 40 years old. This is a remarkable age for an excavation in our days and so the Roemer-Pelizaeus-Museum in Hildesheim decided to celebrate this today. The whole day is filled with a programme where you can listen to the former excavator Edgar B. Pusch as well as the […]
I am very happy to announce, that I edited a volume on digital teaching and learning and it came out just a couple days ago! Way back I reported that I will give a presentation on a symposium that I organised at the University of Cologne in Germany. The publication is the outcome of that […]
Together with the excavator Dr. Henning Franzmeier, I will be giving a presentation at the Freie Universität Berlin on the 19th of December 2019.
For the 50th anniversary issue of “Antike Welt”, a German Special-Interest magazine about archaeology, several reconstruction projects had been asked to contribute their recent results in form of a short article. The topics cover Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome and many more. 24 projects are combined in this extraordinary issue. We have been asked to contribute with […]
Currently, the visualisation of Pi-Ramesse, which we did for an exhibition in Karlsruhe 2016/17, is presented at the Cincinnati Museum Center in Ohio, USA. The exhibition is called “Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs”. It is displayed besides a replica of a chariot wagon and will be there until at least August 2019. The exhibition is […]
A couple years ago, we created a children’s illustration of an excavation for an exhibition. Over the years we got a lot of requests for this image and therefore decided at one point to do a high quality print. We still have a couple of them left and thought, maybe this might be a good […]
On the 12th and 13th of October 2018, the University of Cologne is hosting a two-day symposium on digital teaching in archaeology, called “Communicating the Past in the Digital Age“, short #ComPDA. Besides being one of the organisers (as I work at the university also), I will be giving a talk about the challenges of […]
Jean-Claude Golvin is a French architect and archaeologist and former researcher of the French institution CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique). He is THE specialist concerning archaeological reconstructions, of which he created over 1000 up until now and which are featured in numerous publications, exhibititions and lately computer games.
I recently posted an article about video games in the classroom on my other blog Archaeoinformatics.net. I think it suits this blog as well and I therefore invite you to give it a read. You’ll find the link below. By the way, you should definitely have a look at the reconstructions of Assassin’s Creed Origins. […]
