The Giza Project: Consolidated Archaeological Reference Database II

Continued development of an online resource linking an archaeological archive with 3D visualizations derived from excavations at the Giza pyramids in Egypt over the past century and a half.  Phase one of the project, now complete, entailed development of a database; phase two proposes integration of 3D models into the database.

The Giza Project, a collaborative international initiative based at Harvard University, focuses on collection, electronic preservation, study, and presentation of documentary records from the world's most famous archaeological site: the Giza Pyramids of Egypt and their surroundings (3rd millennium BCE–present). The Project is one of extremely few to combine two major approaches to digital archaeology: digitizing archival collections and applying that primary data to visualize ancient monuments and lifeways in computer renderings. Work proceeds through two coordinated tracks: Data/Informatics (Track 1) and Modeling/Visualization (Track 2). Track 1 was the focus of a previously awarded HCRR grant. Incorporation into the database of Track 2's Project-generated archaeologically-accurate 3D computer models of monuments, objects, and individuals (as avatars) associated with Giza (as well as related source files and documentation employed in the construction of these models) is proposed here.

The Giza Project: Consolidated Archaeological Reference Database

The creation of an integrated database of archaeological data from excavations at the Egyptian site of Giza, distributed across ten institutions in the United States, Europe, and Egypt, representing some 170,000 digital files.

The Giza Project is an international initiative dedicated to the collection, electronic preservation, scholarship, and popular presentation of the world's most famous archaeological site: the Giza Pyramids. We are currently poised to present Giza's rich cultural legacy to the global community by undertaking the creation of the GizaCARD, a core database with the innovative goal of being the central repository and research hub for all Giza data from all collections worldwide and spanning all periods. GizaCARD will represent an unprecedented global collaborative effort and will in future feed a new public website that embeds traditional archaeological documentation into an immersive 3D computer model of the entire site of Giza. The Giza Project provides a model of archaeological and archival information management and demonstrates how digital archaeology may become a new public forum for inquiry and discovery for all.
