Working together with the University of British Columbia KAMBE Project team GeoLens is creating a virtual reality experience of the Late Bronze Age in Cyprus. The prototype will allow academics to experience and interact with a model of the Kalavasos area as our current knowledge projects it. GeoLens will also produce a pipeline, which will allow future discoveries to easily be added to the experience, and will give archaeologists a new way of exploring their theories.
About the KAMBE Project:
The Kalavasos and Maroni Built Environments (KAMBE) Project is an interdisciplinary investigation of the relationships between urban landscapes, social interaction, and social change on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus during the Late Bronze Age (or Late Cypriot period, c. 1650-1100 BCE). This collaborative effort brings together researchers from The University of British Columbia, Cornell University, and The University of Chicago. The work focuses on two important urban centers, Kalavasos-Ayios Dhimitrios and the Maroni complex, located in neighbouring river valleys in south-central Cyprus.
