Technology and Archeology: Special Exhibition “Monuments of Mosul in Danger” Opens

From now until January 21, 2018, the National Central Library (NCL) and Czech Academy of Sciences Oriental Institute are jointly holding an exhibition entitled “Monuments of Mosul in Danger” at the NCL. The opening ceremony for the exhibition was held on November 21. Both Representative Václav Jílek, the Czech Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei, and Director Ondřej Beránek, Oriental Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, were invited to deliver the opening remarks.

This exhibition was first shown in February this year at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Taiwan is the location for the exhibition’s first overseas showing. Mosul is a famous Middle Eastern historical city whose residents have been driven from their homes by the chaos of war; treasured ancient sites have also been a victim of the conflict. Using satellite imaging, telemetry, and historical photographs, a group of historians and archeologists have launched a systematic review and record of this cultural disaster. The exhibition uses techniques such as augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing to present the results of the archeological survey.
