Project Dougga: Theatre

Unesco World Heritage Center

Dougga is an ancient Roman city in northern Tunisia, included in a 65 hectare archaeological site.

UNESCO qualified Dougga as a World Heritage Site in 1997, believing that it represents “the best-preserved Roman town in North Africa”. The site lies in the middle of the countryside.

The impressive ruins that are visible today give some idea of the resources of a small Roman town on the fringes of the empire. These ruins of a complete city with all its components are a testimony to more than 17 centuries of history. They are an outstanding example illustrating the synthesis between different cultures: Numidian, Punic, Hellenistic, and Roman.

The small temple & other area

Our application for a permit to capture several parts of the archaeological site was confirmed, so we got the chance to freely move around the town for three days.

We took a few hundred LIDAR probes, HDRI Images as well as 3.400 reference and texture photos.

During our stay in Tunisia, we concentrated mainly on the great theater in Dougga. Have a look at our realtime assets here
