My paper examining the digital reconstruction of a sacred landscape through the use of archive materials is due for imminent publication in the Archaeological Review from Cambridge, Volume 31.2: Landscapes. The journal will be available to purchase from here:


The Digital Saqqara Project is undertaking extensive archival research in order to digitally reconstruct and re-examine the sacred landscape of the necropolis at North Saqqara, Egypt. The employment of archival data sources comprises a significant aspect of this work, permitting the creation of a new two-dimensional (2D) GIS and three-dimensional (3D) digital model of the funerary landscape. This paper briefly examines the importance of the Saqqara necropolis and how archival data has been employed in the ongoing construction of the 2D GIS and 3D landscape model.
