Imagine 50 or even 50,000 students, anywhere the world, using a VR device to stand together with the instructor virtually, in real time, at the famous Pyramids at Giza, Egypt. The Giza Project at Harvard University assembles information about all the archaeological activity at the Giza Pyramids. Using digital archaeology, the Project unites diverse documentation to produce powerful online and traditional academic research and educational tools and new teaching technologies. It presents academic information about Giza at all levels of expertise and provides a model of archaeological information management.
