We have been published again, this time also on the cover of the recent “Spektrum der Wissenschaft Spezial” about the emergence of cities. Today the deposit copies arrived and we are very proud.

For the ongoing exhibition “Ana ziqquratim” in Strasbourg, we have created two animations. The first onbe being an overfly of the Anu Ziggurat of the Late Uruk Period (2nd half of the 4th millennium BCE) and the second one being an overfly of the Eanna Ziggurat of the Ur III Period (21st century BCE) in Uruk. The models are not new and you can find the description of both projects already on our website, but the two animations are brand-new. Enjoy!
Complementing the ongoing exhibition “ana ziqquratim” in Strasbourg, the exhibition catalogue is published, where I was able to contribute a small article about the White Temple of Uruk. It is in French (thank you very much for the translation!), but the catalogue is worth a look. On 287 pages you will find over 30 articles concerning the topic of Ancient Near Eastern architecture and especially ziggurats. The exhibition is still ongoing and you can see it between the 27th of April and the 21st of June 2016 in Strasbourg: Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire de Strasbourg, 6 place de la République, 67000 Strasbourg.
Between the 27th of April and the 21st of June 2016 there will be an exhibition on ziggurats in Strasbourg (France). We were happy to provide two animations for this exhibtion, where you can see the Anu Ziggurat and the Eanna Ziggurat in detail besides other visualisations of ziggurats. If you have the possibility, please check out the exhibition. It was created by the students of the University of Strasbourg. I highly recommend it.
Between the 25th and 29th of April 2016 the 10th International Congress on the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East (ICAANE)is held in Vienna, Austria. There is a section called “Images in Context: Agency, Audiences & Perception” where I will present a talk about Architectural Reconstructions as a scientific tool. You can find the program and abstracts on the official website.
If you are following us and going to the ICAANE this year, I would be glad if you come by and say hello.
