Views of the Acropolis at Pergamon

3D drawing maps Univ. of Washington. The work of David Schulz, a student in the PhD program in 1992, illustrates how computing has assisted in understanding archaeological evidence from the ancient world. Pergamon was one of several ancient theatre sites re-examined in 1992 by PhD students in Theatre History at the University of Washington, working with Dr. Jack Wolcott in an attempt to understand how and why theatrical activity spread from its presumed birthplace in Athens across the Mediterranean world. In an effort to understand the evolution of the city over time, and to understand how the theatre site and the theatre institution related to activity in Pergamon, a portion of the original (1885) site plan of the acropolis was digitized and developed into a 3D model.
