The Impact of 3D VR Reconstructions: Koptos - the ancient Egyptian temple 1600 BC
Question - different pasts: what was built in 1600 BC at Koptos, a whole new temple or some small chapels?

Background information on the ancient Egyptian temple of Koptos 1600BC
Comments on the model: Once the first model was completed, we could build the second model very rapidly. However. the location of the panel images was quite confusing, as we were not sure if the panels were recovered from the main sancutuary or separate chapels, hence the two models.
Evidence: The two reconstruction are based on other roughly contemporay temples excavated in Egypt.
Does the Koptos 1600 BC question emerge from the pages?
Does the reconstruction help you learn about the site, or impose itself as reality?
