>We especially hope that the qtvr and video clip presentations in the Notes

>students. Two qtvr nodes that have become disconnected must be restored:
>the atrium and the room of the mysteries in the Villa of the Mysteries.
>We will reconnect those soon because of the interest in the Villa of the
>Mysteries generated by the upcoming exhibition on the frieze at the
>University of Michigan.
>There are several more videos that we want to add and will do so as soon
>as they have been digitized. One is what I call a "silent video." It is
>an unnarrated tour of the House of Pansa (not the whole Insula Arriana
>Polliana, just the atrium house at its core.) It begins with a steadycam
>walkthrough. (The audio is actually on and you can hear the crunching of
>gravel under foot.) Then follow several setups using the tripod to
>present various parts of the house. My goal in making the video was to
>provide an exercise in which students could write and possibly present in
>class their own narrated tour of a Pompeian house. I put a couple of
>copies on reserve and let the students check them out. It has worked well
>and so I am willing to share it.
>Others videos are narrated tours of the forum and of the House of the
