November 28, 2007
Join us for Remixing Çatalhöyük Day, a public program sponsored by OKAPI
and the Berkeley Archaeologists at Çatalhöyük. Visit OKAPI Island in the
3-D virtual environment of Second Life (see Getting Started below) and
explore the past and present of Çatalhöyük, a 9000-year-old village
located in present-day Turkey. OKAPI Island features virtual
reconstructions of the excavation site and multimedia exhibits of research
data. The Island was constructed by a team of undegraduate research
apprentices during the Spring and Fall 2007 semester. The Remixing
Çatalhöyük program includes lectures, guided tours, games, and much more.
