Although my personal love has always been Roman history from the time of Julius Caesar, my second historical interest has always been Egypt.
Now, UCLA has spent two years working up this virtual tour of Karnak. It makes me wish I had some speed to this old clunker of a computer, but alas, I don’t think I can use the site well.
You can read a nice explanation at Science Daily about how this was accomplished. Karnak is one of the largest archaelogical sites in the world.
I grew up at a time when we mostly had slide shows. If we had the occasional “talking” school educational show, it usually the sound went out, and the film broke once or twice. It’s just amazing what is available to teachers now. I’m soooo jealous.
If you have kids, you might want to share this with them. More to the point, share it with your kids history teacher!
I haven’t brought you much science lately, but I still look over the posts most days, trying to find something of general interest.
