| The Virtual Dig
An interactive adventure for young people that provides
an educational experience in archaeology and historical
architecture. The Web site was produced for the Israel
Museum, in collaboration with museum archaeologists. This
3D computer graphic reconstruction and walk-through is
based on the permanent TEL exhibition at the Israel Museum.
A TEL is an archaeological mound. The recreated TEL at
the museum is a composite of five different historical
periods each represented by architectural remains that
reflect characteristics of specific periods. The Virtual
Dig Web site is a teaching tool that serves as a parallel
educational resource for distance learning and for visitors
to the museum who wish to understand the TEL exhibit in
context and in depth.
