This site documents our early efforts at creating a virtual reconstruction of the ancient South Asian city of Sirkap. Sirkap is part of the larger archaeological complex at Taxila, now located in the modern state of Pakistan, in the province of Punjab. The project is an attempt to apply twenty-first century technology to a first/second century CE cultural heritage.


This project has been made possible through the a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities and by the contributions of colleagues at Claremont McKenna College and UC Berkeley. We thank them all, as well as Garage Games who allowed us to use their Torque Game Engine to implement the project.
