Ancient Egypt in 3D is a virtual exploration of the architectural wonders built by the pharaohs, and of other monuments in the Nile Valley. From the terraced Pyramid of Djoser to the Alexandria Lighthouse of the Ptolemaic age, the program reconstructs, in 3D and in all their polychromy, buildings that are nowadays highly ruined, or have totally disappeared after Napoleon’s Campaign to Egypt at the end of the XVIII century.
With this innovative INTERACTIVE DVD you can navigate through the magnificent sites of Karnak and Luxor.
