Archaeology buffs and tourists alike may well make some interesting discoveries of their own at the Theban Mapping Project's KV5 Web site. Take, for example, the interactive QTVR image of a recently discovered buried skeleton: visitors to the site can adjust the image to see the layers that archaeologists had to dig through in order to uncover the remains. Another QTVR image allows visitors to trace the progress of the excavation over the past nine years.
Weeks and his staff promise regular updates to the Web site, along with an area devoted to kids, a question-and-answer page, and a chat room. The technology that would truly enhance this site is video, but given the primitive state of video on the Web, it may be a while before video can be put to effective use. Nonetheless, the Theban Mapping Project is clearly tapping into one of the most promising aspects of the World Wide Web: the ability to trace the evolution of a newsworthy event by integrating photographs, interactive images, maps, and text into a multimedia document, or "Webumentary," that can be updated instantaneously as new developments take place. The KV5 Web site, like the actual KV5 excavation, is a work in progress; check back in often to see what new things are opening up.
