An excellent recreation of 17th Century London

A group of students from De Montfort University have created a highly-detailed 3D model of London (or at least a large area surrounding Pudding Lane) just prior to the 1666 Great Fire.

The model is just for fly-past purposes at the moment, but it could easily be repurposed to a game or some kind of interactive exploration experience. The model was built in CryEngine, the same engine used to create the Crysis series of video games and the forthcoming Star Citizen.
