Welcome to my Domus! As you wander through my house you will discover places that serve as my home base for certain activities. My Gallery is for my historical and academic pursuits. I created this site to express my passion for ancient history, especially of ancient Rome. I express this through recreating various aspects of ancient cultures in a 3D medium. The AncientVine also serves to display visions of ancient Greece, Egypt and other worlds of antiquity.

Feel free to wonder about as there are many things to enjoy. Thanks for visiting my home!

A Virtual Domus

Take a stroll through the reconstruction of a authentic roman house - called a domus. All of it constructed in 3D. All textures created by Ancientvine - a mixture of Pompeian second and third styles. Knock on the door and enter as you will be able to walk-through each of the rooms to get a glance of a typical Roman domus, complete with furniture and other ammenties a well to do Roman would possess.

All citizens are welcome. You can navigate through by simple use of "hotspots" - hidden areas in the image that will take you to the next area in the domus. Just simply scan and click with your mouse to move about. Not only will you be able to navigate about from room to room but you also might find additional secrets reveiled. My servant Thaleia will be more than happy to assist you. Enjoy the tour!

Discover Ancient Alexandria

Enjoy a short film depicting what the ancient city of Alexandria might have looked like around the time of Cleopatra. It will includes the port itself, The Pharos of Alexandria , Library of Alexandria, Cleopatra's residence and the royal palace district.


On the Horizon

I've been working as much as possible to create new material to the site. Most likely the largest project I've done so far is the reconstruction of the ancient Egyptian port-city of Alexandria during the reign of Cleopatra (1st Century BC). Pictured above is one of many versions I have completed of the Pharos of Alexandria. You can visit Alexandria here.

Alexandria, Egypt - Ancientvine

My virtual roman domus is still on exhibit for the Museum Victoria in Australia. Go here to see the animation they created from the domus. It is called the House of the Vine.

Please visit often as there are sure to be many updates to the Alexandria project. Currently I am working on a short film (animation) depicting the ancient city and port of Alexandria as it would have looked like based on the latest theories of underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio.

Thanks for visiting the AncientVine, stop by more often as new Visions of Rome...Egypt...and other antiquities may appear at any moment. Thanks for visiting!
