Digital Giza : visualizing the Pyramids
Der Manuelian, Peter, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2017
The Giza necropolis in time and space -- Archaeological explorations at Giza from 1800 to the present -- Windows -- Napoleon in Egypt -- Thutmose IV -- Karl Richard Lepsius -- George Reisner -- Hermann Junker -- The boats of Khufu -- From stone to silicon: translating the medium -- Giza 3D : the real-time immersive experience -- Case studies: pyramid, temple, tomb, statue, human -- Case studies -- Reconstruction: how much is too much? -- Will it fit? -- Everything changes -- Simulation city -- "The kid stays in the picture" (animated characters and avatars) -- Where can we go from here?.

"After a brief introduction to the Giza Plateau of the Old Kingdom and a summary of the history of excavation at the site, this book explores new, primarily digital, approaches to accessing the site. A 3-D reconstruction of the site allows for both general access and targeted research inquiries that were previously impossible, even at the site itself. Case studies and philosophical musings on the nature of visualization in archaeology round out the volume, along with some speculation about emerging technologies and possible next steps."--

L'atelier monétaire de Châteaubleau : officines et monnayages d'imitation du IIIe siècle dans le nord-ouest de l'Empire
Pilon, Fabien, author
Paris : CNRS éditions, [2016]
Châteaubleau (France), au cœur de la Seine-et-Marne, entre Provins et Nangis, a été découvert un atelier de fabrication de monnaies d'imitation. Plusieurs officines, trois au moins, y ont battu monnaie dans la seconde moitié du IIIe siècle apr. J.-C., laissant sur place des milliers d'objets de frappe et de coulage parfois exceptionnels. Ces artéfacts, soigneusement étudiés depuis 1995, documentent les productions et les techniques d'un atelier monétaire sans équivalent connu pour cette période dans les provinces nord-occidentales de l'Empire romain.
