Even if you haven’t traveled in the past year, it’s possible your knowledge of the globe has expanded considerably. With the world on lockdown, art and culture institutions have brought their experiences to the virtual realm for all to enjoy.
Now, thanks to Harvard University’s knowledge-design studio metaLAB, you’ll be able to explore the pyramids at Giza in Egypt. Its Digital Giza Project—uncovered by Open Culture—showcases documentation of the archaeological Egyptian sites obtained by Harvard, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and “many other institutions,” digitized and published for free to appeal to history buffs all over the world.
Perhaps most notable from the project are the ‘Giza 3D’ tours depicting reconstructions of major sites of Giza, such as its pyramids, the Great Sphinx, its tombs and its temples.
Trek along some of the world’s most precious archaeological zones from your own home by watching the videos below. You can also enjoy more content from the Digital Giza Project here.
