Here is a small preview of our animation currently to be seen at the exhibtion “Ramses – Göttlicher Herrscher am Nil” in Karlsruhe, Germany. With this, we wish you all a merry christmas and a good start into 2017!

The work on the exhibition of Ramesses II. in Karlsruhe Germany is nearly finished. Our animation with the reconstruction of the city center is already in place and works smoothly. The exhibition opens this Saturday, the 17th of December 2016, at the Schloß Karlsruhe. For further information visit the official homepage of the Landesmuseum Karlsruhe.

Soon, we will also release a teaser trailer for the exhibtion, so stay tuned.

Come on and step in! You are standing in Pi-Ramesse the capital city of Ramesses II. in the 13th century BCE. Have a look around and use your cursor to move the view. Maybe you will be able to find a hint of the upcoming exhibtion of Ramesses II. in Karlsruhe this month!

We are currently working on two animations for the upcoming exhibition “Ramses. Göttlicher Herrscher am Nil” (“Ramesses. Divine ruler on the Nile”) in the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe, Germany. The exhibtion will open on the 17th of December 2016 and last until the 18th of June of 2017. In the upcoming months, we want to keep you up-to-date on the progress of creating these two animations and are perhaps able to share some previews. The first animations will present a extensive reconstruction of the center of the capital of Ramesses, called Pi-Ramesses. The second animation will show details of the stables that were excavated there.

In an article published in the series Orientalia Lovaniensa Analecta, Henning Franzmeier wrote about the secondary function of pottery. This case study used the ceramic assemblage from a Ramesside well near Qantir-Piramesse in the Eastern Nile Delta in Egypt. The visualisation of the well was made in 2008 and you can read about it here.
