The south church at Bawit in 3D

The Louvre

I think that I posted this before, but it was a while ago and not everyone will have seen it.

This virtual visit to the Bawit monastery takes us back in time to ancient Coptic Egypt in the first millennium of the Christian era. This imaginary exhibition presents the elements that were found during the site excavations and features a reconstruction of the church as archaeologists imagine it was in the 7th century AD.
