Caption: Virtual tourism: Nefertari tomb. Virtual reality screen display of a view inside a chamber of the Egyptian tomb of Nefertari. Nefertari was wife of pharoah Ramses II and was buried in this elaborate tomb. By wearing a headset to provide a stereo- scopic three-dimensional view inside the tomb, the virtual visitor can maneuver their way around chambers and through passageways. Each chamber can be explored from any angle. Colourful murals on the walls and hieroglyph writing can be observed close-up as voices reading ritual texts are heard. In this way the tomb can be visited without being damaged by tourists. Virtual reality programme developed by the Italian electricity company ENEL.
