Virtual cave exhibition of Paleolithic Georgia
Warsaw University is getting ready for a virtual exhibition of caves in Georgia. After putting on Virtual Reality (VR) glasses, you will be transported to the Upper Paleolithic period in Chiatura.
In 1916 Polish archeologist Stefan Krukowski discovered a settlement in Chiatura’s Gvarjila rock caves which dates back to the Stone Age. A hundred years later, virtual reality lab specialists are following in his footsteps.
For the first time technically advanced and very expensive 3D scanners were brought to Georgia by Poland. This will help document the cultural heritage of Georgia.
The provision of the 3D Scanners was made possible thanks to the Krukowski Polish-German Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Kutaisi, with the assistance of the Polish Institute in Tbilisi.
