The 3D models in archaeology posts seem to be pretty popular, so I decided to add some more content for you 🙂 Here are some links:
- 3-D Virtual Model Reconstructs Germany’s Heidelberg Castle: A 3D model of Heidelberg Castle has been made using photographs, drawings, and surveys of the ruins
- Around the World in 80 Models: Petra: An update from our South African friends, the Zamani project, on a previously mentioned site for 3D models, Sketchfab
- Students Recreate Japan’s Nintoku-ryo Kofun in Lego Bricks: 3D models, aerial photographs, and Lego’s modeling software used to plan the recreation of a Lego Nintoku-ryo burial mound.

Lastly, here is a photo of an interactive display of 3D models. We found this display at a temporary Humbold forum exhibition near the Berliner Dom. Tapping on each model allows you to view that particular model in more detail as well as get more information on it.
