Virtual Qumran (Short Video)

A view of the north side of the reconstructed Khirbet Qumran fortress, facing south towards the Dead Sea

The UCLA Qumran Visualization Project (click here) has been making available some neat movies and images based on their virtual model of the Qumran site, the locale associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls. I think it is well worth doing a few posts on this material so as to give a wider audience access to it. I'll start with Trailer # 1 for the virtual model and the Aerial Overview of the site.
