Touring Virtually: The Virtual World Project

Do you wish to tour a fascinating archaeological site but you're short of time and cash? Here is a viable option developed by Nicolae Roddy and Ronald Simkins of Creighton University: the Virtual World Project. This is a web-based teaching and study tool that presents interactive virtual reality tours of the ancient world. Updated continuously, it is an ongoing project with a primary focus on the Levant. To date, many sites in Israel and Jordan have been extensively photographed and graphically represented to allow the visitor to "walk" through the sites, many of which offer an audio component, as well. Check it out, and happy touring!The Virtual World Project
