I thoroughly enjoyed this book… It is clear that Manuelian has ‘lived and breathed’ Giza for many years and his deep insight comes shining through in his account of the key figures that have contributed to our understanding of the site… A very rewarding and thought-provoking work.—Colin Reader, Ancient Egypt

Der Manuelian provides a well-written, profusely illustrated, and thought-provoking case study of the digital Giza project that will be of great interest to anyone involved in a digital archaeology project.—W. Kotter, Choice

Digital Giza is not only a welcome contribution to Egyptology and Old Kingdom archaeology, but also a well-designed scholarly presentation of this monumental 3D project to a wider audience. Manuelian’s systematic approach and big picture vision have created a powerful scientific manual that many across the world will follow.—Miroslav Barta, Czech Institute of Egyptology

How did the amazing Digital Giza online resource come into being? This book illustrates vividly how a virtual army of people, from early excavators to programmers and volunteers, were involved in exploring, recording, organizing, connecting, and showing a wealth of information on the Giza necropolis. Manuelian, who is the driving force in this project, gives ample credit to all those who followed his vision.—Willeke Wendrich, University of California, Los Angeles
