Phys .org: Destroyed ancient temple now open for virtual exploration. “Five years after its destruction, the ancient Temple of Bel in Palmyra, Syria has been digitally reconstructed by the UC San Diego Library’s Digital Media Lab using cutting-edge 3-D methods and artificial intelligence applications. Inspired by a past collaboration between the Library and UC San Diego’s Levantine Archeology Laboratory, this project has resulted in the digital preservation of more than a dozen lost reliefs, sculptures, frescos and paintings, all made publicly available on the Library’s Digital Collections website.”
