and Popular Science
the area of popular science, BB has integrated new technologies into
the very fabric of the archćological "dig." A recent film project, Unwrapping
Urkesh produced entirely on non-traditional media has had its
European broadcast premiere and was most recently featured at AGON, Athens'
Film Festival for Mediterranean Archćology. The film uses archaeological field
reports, elevations, plans and renderings, slides, photographs, video and computer
animation to create a new kind of archćological experienceparticipation
in the recovery of a major monument in human history, the Palace of the Royal
Rulers of Urkesh at Tell Mozan in modern-day Northern Syria.
