Comprising a series of didactic panels, the exhibition features two main technologies: barcodes and augmented reality. Visitors will be able to scan barcodes using their smartphones in order to view the 3D film visualisation of the archaeological sites. Augmented reality can be viewed via an exhibition app, which will enable visitors to scan the panels to reveal 3D augmented reality models.
The exhibition covers countries of the Mediterranean basin from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan and Egypt, and then down to the Arabian Gulf, to drop anchor in Qatar. Some of these sites include Qatar’s Al Zubarah Fort, Hagia Sophia in Turkey, Syria’s Krak des Chevaliers and Tunisia’s Amphitheatre of El Jem.
