Tour an Ancient Religious Site Today

This is neat: The UCLA Experiential Technologies Center has built a virtual 3-D model of Karnak, the huge 4,000-year-old religious complex near Luxor, Egypt.
Generation after generation, pharaohs put their stamp on the site by installing—or removing—chapels, sphinxes, obelisks, and other sacred structures. Now, using Digital Karnak, you can see how the site looked at any point in its history and visualize how it changed from a two-acre temple to a 69-acre complex (with eight temples, 10 chapels, 100 sphinxes, and more) over a span of about 1,500 years. —Heather Wax
