Immersive Archeology

From the Second Life for Educators Listserver. Our Greek, Wild West, and Paris areas anyone?

"Immersive Archeology- Aura Lily breathes life into into the architecture and culture of Ancient Egypt"Aura Lily has been using Second Life to recreate the artifacts and architecture of ancient Egypt. Using maps drawn by one of Napoleon's artist engineers, she's also working on an accurate recreation of temples and buildings on the island of Philae. Aura's work is simply amazing, and I think the educational potential to use Second Life asan immersive way to explore ancient architecture and culture is limitless. She has no formal training in 3d modeling, yet she has a true passion for this ancient era and has done all of this work completely on her own.

Examples can be found [Here].
