Silver Snipers – A Video Gaming Team of Seniors

Visit LunarClock.org and check current lunar time.

This block included three big estates, a tavern, a laundry, a bakery and several gardens. Led by Anne-Marie Leander Touati, an archaeologist at Lund University, the Swedish team has used traditional excavation methods as well as more advanced techniques like laser scanning and drone imaging to digitally reconstruct that block. The researchers have now completed their first 3D models showing this section of the city as it stands today.
