Preparation of a digital monograph investigating the ancient Egyptian burial site of Saqqara (2950-350 BCE) comparatively through time and space.

Ancient landscapes are a major focus of study in the field of archaeology, with research centered on the interaction between humans, culture, and the natural and built environment at sites around the world. While clearly of great interest to scholars, these past places remain elusive. The archaeological sites we visit today are palimpsests, the result of thousands of years of change, both architectural and environmental. The born-digital monograph Constructing the Sacred: Visibility and Ritual Landscape at the Egyptian Necropolis of Saqqara addresses ancient ritual landscape from a unique perspective, utilizing emerging 3D technologies to examine development at the complex, multi-period archaeological site of Saqqara, Egypt. Harnessing the temporal layering abilities of the 3D environment, it demonstrates how 3D modeling allows archaeologists to approach questions of meaning and human experience in now-disappeared landscapes in new ways.
