The Ancient Egyptian Temple Complex Karnak: Instructional Resources

The development and testing of a web-based, three-dimensional model, and related learning materials of the ancient Egyptian temple site of Karnak.

The project will assemble a team of noted Egyptologists, educators, and technologists to develop learning resources related to the Temple at Karnak in Egypt. The project has three primary goals: (1) to assemble databases of information related to Karnak to be posted online, (2) build an interactive computer model of the site, and (3), using the model, to create a series of still images and digital video clips for use in the classroom that will also be made available online free-of-charge. The project will have nationwide impact on the teaching of Egyptian culture and history by providing instructors with academically vetted classroom resources on this important site. The primary beneficiaries of the project will be undergraduate instructors and learners studying Egypt and/or the Temple at Karnak across diverse disciplines including architecture, art history, archaeology, and Near Eastern languages and cultures.
