A journey to the land of Sumer

This video, originally created for the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, showcases the Sumerian civilization’s masterpieces. It is a result of a project that involved the rearrangement of the Sumerian gallery and the creation of digital replicas of ancient artworks preserved in the British Museum.
The digital replicas were generated by the Laboratory of Geomatics for Cultural Heritage at Politecnico di Torino, using laser scanning and photogrammetry techniques. The video serves as an interdisciplinary application of digital humanities, combining geomatics expertise with archaeology to create a storytelling video for dissemination purposes.
