Description

This lecture was delivered at Iowa State University by PHDW cluster member Bob Cargill & Cale Staley and recorded as a podcast. In it, they discuss how recent advances in the fields of archaeology and the digital humanities have enabled scholars to create digital reconstructions of archaeological remains at Qumran, the site associated with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Dr. Cargill uses 3D and virtual reality to introduce the audience to the ancient sites, proposes various reconstructions, and highlights the process for databasing archaeological data.
