THE LATEST ISSUE OF 'EEF NEWS'

EEF NEWS is an email newsletter posted on the EEF mailinglist. It appears every week, on Thursday. Below you'll find the website version, which is also renewed after every following weekend (usually on Sunday evening).
For subscription to the EEF, the moderated scholarly mailinglist for mainstream Egyptology, see http://www.egyptologyforum.org or the link at the end of this page. The EEF list also has a daily digest option and a weekly digest option, and has monthly archives (digests and archives are all sorted by topic). There is no seperate subscription list for the NEWS alone, so if you are less interested in following debates, you may get the News by either visiting this website or by subscribing to the Weekly EEF Digest (meaning you'll get the NEWS on Thursday and one easily deleted Digest on Sunday).

Major news items which are of obvious interest for the list as a whole (like first-hand announcements of discoveries ad excavation reports) are best posted directly on EEF; smaller news bits (like announcements of lectures, website updates/reviews, email address changes etc.) are good candidates for being bundled in EEF NEWS.

At the exhibition visitors can try out the 3D technology themselves and handle virtual images of historical treasures. The public are invited to do this through a series of interactive activities that combine 3D images with immersive technologies such as heightened reality and gesture recognition. For example, one interactive visualisation transports visitors to an archaeological site in Egypt where they are able to select 3D replica artefacts to pick up and inspect. Visitors can also try their hands at restoring an ancient mummy mask through a touch screen interactive image that allows them to choose and test different facial features. Another interactive option offers a 3D image of a skull that archaeologists believe is that of an ancient ruler named Inti. Visitors can then build layers of muscles, veins and skin on to the ruler's skull via touch screen animation to see what Inti might have looked like.
