Virtual' Saqqara: A 3D Visit to Ancient Egypt's Most Enduring Cemetery

Dr. Elaine Sullivan, University of California--Santa Cruz

Free admission; Open to the public

The ancient Egyptian necropolis of Saqqara was the burial place of kings, queens, priests, and elite officials during the entire Pharaonic Period (3000-332 BCE), and boasts some of the most spectacular architecture and art in Egypt. Applying new technologies to ancient cultural materials, the project uses a 3D model that digitally 'reconstructs' the original appearance of the ancient monuments and visualizes large-scale change over time at the cemetery.
The digital model provides new insights into how royal and elite Egyptians created a special monumental landscape to guarantee their eternal life and power.

DR ELAINE SULLIVAN (M.A. and Ph.D. Johns Hopkins University) is an Associate Professor of History at the University of California, Santa Cruz, an Egyptologist and a Digital Humanist. She has excavated five seasons with Johns Hopkins University at the temple of the goddess Mut (Luxor) as well as four seasons at the UCLA-Rijksuniversiteit Groningen project at Karanis in the Egyptian Fayum.

Her upcoming publication, Constructing the Sacred (Stanford University Press 2020), utilizes a geo-temporal 3D model of the Saqqara necropolis (near modern Cairo) to investigate its ritual landscape. In 2007-2008, she served as project coordinator for the Digital Karnak Project, creating a multi-phased 3D virtual reality model of the famous ancient temple complex. Sullivan has published extensively on the use of digital technologies, including articles in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, and the Bulletin for the Institute of Classical Studies.

ARCE is a private, nonprofit organization that supports research on all aspects of Egyptian history and culture, fosters broader knowledge among the general public, and strengthens American-Egyptian cultural ties.
