All you need to do is slip on a VR headset and in seconds you’ll find yourself roaming thousand-year-old lands, exploring the Great Pyramids and shadowy tombs of monarchs. This unique virtual reality experience is not only a mesmerising expedition into the past but also an enlightening, educational look at a piece of history.
Are you ready for an unforgettable adventure? There are no hiking boots, camping gear or sun-cream required, just a curiosity for the world of Ancient Egypt and its many secrets. Once you arrive and get geared up with all the cutting-edge VR technology, you’ll travel 4,500 years back in time and start your enlightening journey by seeing the sun rise over the Giza Necropolis. Don’t worry you won’t be wandering aimlessly in the desert, you’ll take the form of a giant avatar and follow a virtual guide with a group of other visitors.
You can expect to be completely immersed in ancient Egyptian culture and architecture. One moment gazing up in awe at the majestic Sphinx, the next making your way to the Pyramid of Giza under the cloak of night for a very special visit. Every piece of information and striking digital recreation is based on extensive research and data that has been collected on-site by Egyptology professor Peter Der Manuelian and his team at Harvard University. So you can be sure what you are witnessing is as precise as possible to give you an accurate, educational and ultimately wondrous experience.
