Analyzing Egyptian Pyramids in the Digital Age


Thursday, April 5, 2018, 6:00pm to 8:00pm


Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford St., Cambridge MA
Current studies of pyramids in the Memphis area of ancient Egypt are being conducted from multiple perspectives, and archaeological data about them is now available from both texts and excavations. The survey data of the pyramids, however, has rarely been updated. Yukinori Kawae will provide historical insights on the development of pyramid construction methods and discuss how a Japanese consortium is using 3D documentation to update survey data in collaboration with the Japanese production company, TV MAN UNION, using drones and Global Navigation Satellite System equipment.
Free event parking at 52 Oxford Street Garage.
This event will be livestreamed on the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture Facebook page. A recording of this program will be available on our YouTube channel approximately three weeks after the lecture.
