In collaboration with Google Arts & Culture, ARCE is pleased to announce the launch of “Preserving Egypt’s Layered History” today in celebration of Egyptian Archaeologists day.
The project will give people access to content developed based on ARCE’s repository of conservation projects in Egypt that reflect the diversity of its history. From anywhere in the world, people can explore the Tomb of Menna in 3D and go on a virtual tour at the Aslam Al Silahdar Mosque. There is also a range of content such as images, videos and recordings of other ARCE conservation efforts including the Basatin Cemetery, Saint Anthony’s Wall Paintings, and the Villa of the Birds Mosaics.
Explore the latest discoveries in the world of Egyptology, learn more about the history of ruling in Egypt and discover in-depth conservation secrets.
The Google Arts & Culture app puts the treasures, stories and knowledge of over 2,000 cultural institutions from 80 countries at your fingertips. If Google’s mission is to make the world’s information more accessible, then Arts & Culture’s mission is to make the world’s culture accessible to anyone, anywhere by means of modern technology such as high-resolution scanning, machine learning and Augmented Reality.
