Virtual tour of Maeshowe goes online
29 Aug 2012 – People across the globe will now be able to enjoy one of Orkney’s most enigmatic Neolithic monuments after Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon unveiled a new ‘virtual’ tour of Maeshowe chambered tomb at Winter Solstice.
The Deputy First Minister unveiled the animation of the 5,000-year-old tomb at a special reception in Kirkwall on Tuesday evening (August 28), held to celebrate the ‘2012, Year of Creative Scotland’ programme.
The virtual tour of Maeshowe has been created using 3D laser-scanning data collected to aid with the conservation and interpretation of the site through the Scottish Ten project – a unique collaboration between Historic Scotland, Glasgow School of Art and CyArk to document Scotland’s five UNESCO World Heritage Sites and five international sites using cutting-edge digital technologies.
The animation can be viewed from 29 Aug atwww.youtube.com/historicscotlandtv
