Very Real People

The archaeological survey was carried out by Frigga Kruse, charged with the task of polar bear watch, and Gary Nobles, Archaeological Data Scientist.

The digital reconstruction was undertaken at the eScience-Center at Tübingen University. Phillippe Kluge, Vinzenz Rosenkranz, Luca Brunke, and Matthias Lang combined archaeological understanding with digital expertise.

The project 3D Reconstruction of Advent City was funded by the Svalbard Environmental Protection Fund (project ID 16/64). This website serves to display the preliminary product. In August 2019, we will demonstrate the virtual reality at different locations in Longyearbyen.
