Check out this awesome model of the Rosetta Stone, if you have a 3d viewer like Google Cardboard you can see it in VR! Via My Modern Met:
The Rosetta Stone is one of the British Museum‘s top attractions, but its popularity—and location in a glass case—can make it difficult to examine the historical artifact closely. Now, the museum has placed a 3D model of the Rosetta Stone online, allowing people around the world to get up close and personal with the piece—for free!
The museum collaborated with Sketchfab to bring the Rosetta Stone, as well as over 200 other items from the British Museum, online in three-dimensions. “This scan was part of our larger attempt to capture as many of our iconic pieces from the collection —and indeed the unseen in store objects—and make them available for people to view in 3D or in more tactile forms,” shared museum advisor Daniel Pett.
