Inside Q39 (SE Corner of the House of Tyche)

Using photos from the 2014 season and a technique call photogrammetry, Jackie Wiebold has constructed a 3D model of the small room built over the remains of the southeast corner of the House of Tyche. Work on that room was completed this summer. Join the excavation (virtually) and explore the area for yourself!
