TOMB OF NEFERTARI (QV66)
CLICK THE TOMB ABOVE FOR THE VIRTUAL REALITY 3D TOUR
Click here to read the complete description of the tomb.
This tour will provide a unique experience, allowing you to navigate your way around the rooms and the corridors, as in a video game. It requires a small VRML browser plug-in (for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari) in order to view the 3D model.
The downloadable "CORTONA 3D" plug-in is recommended, free on ParallelGraphics. The procedure of installation is automatic.
The software is intuitive after some trial runs, but a help page is available in the Cortona User Guide.
Also, when using the "Cortona" plug-in, right click and select help.
An alternate, "COSMO", VRML plug-in is available from N.I.S.T..

Although this tomb may appear complete, there are areas which I have not yet been able to obtain images : e.g. the burial chamber northern annexe,
or images are of poor quality, but the best available : e.g. the burial chamber side annexes.
If anyone can supply these images, I would be very grateful.
