The Institute for Digital Archaeology, in collaboration with the UK Permanent Mission to the United Nations, will open a new exhibition at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City on the evening of August 6 2018. 

The Exhibition will feature a VR experience of London through the Ages, in collaboration with London Based 3D modelers AccuCities, as well as a large scale 3D printed model of the city. 

A corresponding photography exhibition will showcase images of Palmyra captured by French photographer Félix Bonfils in the 1860s alongside pictures of the site taken in summer 2018. The stark contrast between the images, taken more than 100 years apart, show the extent of the destruction in Palmyra, but also speak to the resilience of cultural heritage and its continued fascination and importance throughout the ages.
