Archimedia I-Architecture in Ancient Near East
The Archimedia project was created by the University of Haifa Library, Israel, to help students understand how buildings and other structures in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia were constructed, and what they looked like. Students will enjoy the profiles of specific pyramids and ziggurats. Each profile includes images (taken from various angles), a description of its materials and building techniques.
