As many of you are already aware Google Earth already was an excellent resource for researchers, as a historian I have used GE on many occasions to get an understanding of the geography of an area of interest, or workout distances between sites. Google have added a fantastic new layer, Rome 3D. When you open this layer you can explore Rome of 320 AD in 3D, some buildings have high detail exteriors and some also have highly detailed interiors. This is a great project and really highlights how modern media and technology can contribute to our understanding of the past and new ways to communicate research to the wider community interested in the past.
I currently work for the University of Melbourne Australia as an academic specialist - curriculum designer in the Faculty of Arts. Where I work with other academics, primarily in history, to advise and assist subject coordinators in redesigning subject syllabi, structures and teaching delivery. Previously I taught Ancient History and Classical Languages at another Australian university for seven years full-time. I have taught various aspects of Roman, Mycenaean and Greek history and created courses on Barbarian Europe, Terrorism and Rebellion in the Ancient World and Ancient Warfare.
