Google Earth release Ancient Rome 3D

Posted by LibeRaCe on November 17, 2008

Google Earth have released an Ancient Rome 3D layer which shows the buildings and structures of the city during the the rule of Constantine the Great 320 A.D. Get a birds eye view of the city at the height of its architectural and cultural development and perch yourself upon Palatine hill and look down upon Circus Maximus. Swoop through the streets and discover 6,000 buildings containing historical information at place marks, some of which you can enter and explore the interior.

The Ancient Rome 3D layer was created in conjunction with the Rome Reborn Project 2.0 at the University of Virginia’s Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities.

Unfortunately you may be unable to download Google Earth 4.3 within the college, due to restrictions!
