TOMB OF SENNEFER (TT96)
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..

The images total over 3Mb, so be patient, they will load.
(Broadband connection recommended)
The main chamber and antechamber of this tomb are now complete
(thanks to B. Claus for the two missing wall sections).
This still leaves the upper mortuary temple (current closed to the public), located through the entrance, seen at the rear of the courtyard.
I have not been able to represent, to the full extent, the unevenness of the ceilings.
