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.

As part of the Ancient Near East section at khanacademy.org, you can learn a lot about the Sumerian culture. One article is dedicated to the Anu Zuggurat and the White Temple in Uruk. We provided our reconstructions to illustrate that article and for everybody to understand better the complex architecture of that time. Take a couple minutes and refresh your memory!
The current issue of the French magazine “Les Cahiers Science & Vie: Histoire et Civilisations” features two of our reconstructions of Uruk. On the bottom left you can see the reconstruction of Architectural Layer 8 and on the bottom right you’ll see the Eanna ziggurat of the Ur-III period. The issue is dedicated to the rise and the necessity of cities during the emergence of civilisations. You can check out their website here.
Finally, we can release our latest project: The reconstruction of the Great Hall of Karakorum. This medieval Buddhist temple was built upon a complicated terrace, but read for yourselves on our portfolio page. Oh, and there is also a nearly 8 minute long animation explaining the site, terrace, conservation management and reconstruction!
In the current issue of the German magazine “Archäologie Weltweit”, one of our reconstructions of the Oxus Temple is featured! The project of the Oxus Temple is not online on our website yet, but we will change that soon. You can have a look at the magazine for free here.
