Tomsk scientists will create a digital model of the Scythian «Valley of the Kings» for the Hermitage
«The TSU is already working together with the Hermitage. For two years the scientists have been conducting joint research in the territory of the Republic of Tuva, during which time aerial photography was made of Scythian burial grounds in the Turan-Uyuk Basin, known as the «Valley of the Kings». Scientists surveyed over 20 square kilometres «, said the representative of the press service to the news agency.
TSU archaeologists will use modern equipment to create a 3D model of the entire valley as well as of individual burial mounds and burials. The 3D model will not only have a scientific significance, but it can also become the basis for interactive multimedia exhibitions and virtual museums.
