Abstract: This paper presents research completed as part of a Memphis Center Fellowship in the Arts. A team of students worked to create an online game using a 3D model of ancient architecture from the Minoan period in Greece, ca. 1450 BCE. This paper presents that art historical and archaeological research and the 3D models created as a result. The House of the Rhyta, a structure found on the island of Crete with both domestic and ritual purposes, reconstructed through digital modeling in Maya. The 3D modeled objects, inspired by actual artifacts from the site, populate a digital reconstruction of the ancient house. This paper presents both the use of objects in the house and their anticipated purpose for the game. The final project for fall of 2017 aims to create an online game used to educate users on Minoan culture and ritual.
