Features and Forms Again


I probably have one more day in the field this season on the Western Argolid Regional Project. Over the last 6 weeks, we’ve surveyed close to 2500 units and recorded important data for each unit on paper maps and paper forms. We then keyed this data into a database and plotted our maps on a GIS to produce density maps. Our ceramicists, Scott Gallimore and Sarah James, continue to move through the 30,000 artifacts recovered […]

Three Thoughts from the Western Argolid Regional Project


I know it’s cliche, but archaeology provides a good context for thinking. Over the last few weeks, I’ve gotten some good thinking done. In fact, my colleagues, The Directors of the project, have been extremely patient interlocutors this summer. I am convinced that an important part of archaeology remains the close and continuous intellectual and social contact between participants. In fact, I write about that very thing in the context of digital archaeological practice here. […]

Three Thoughts from the Western Argolid Regional Project


I know it’s cliche, but archaeology provides a good context for thinking. Over the last few weeks, I’ve gotten some good thinking done. Since it’s the middle of the middle week of the survey season on the Western Argolid Regional Project, and thanks to “a non-serious, fatigue-related, incident”, I’ve been stranded in my lux-u-ary apartment for the last two day, I’ve scrawled down a few thoughts about a few things: 1. Team Leaders. One of […]

Replicating the Past: 3D Printing & Cultural Heritage


Below is the abstract for a paper addressing the previous blog’s Athenian project. It was accepted for presentation and publication in IEEE Ethics in Science and Technology, though we were forced to shelve it for the time being, and so the paper has yet to be written. We will get round to it sooner rather than later–as it is a topic near and dear to our hearts. Replicating the Past: Questions and Concerns Regarding the […]

The Virtual Archaeology, Museums, & Cultural Tourism Conference in Delphi


In the fall of 2013, Vid and I participated in the Virtual Archaeology: Museums & Cultural Tourism Conference. Organized by the University of the Aegean, the conference took place at the European Cultural Center in Delphi, Greece which brought together the museum groups from the world’s top museums, government officials on tourism, and leading digital archaeological teams like ours and Maurizio Forte’s team from Duke University to confer on the future interplay between these areas. […]

Survey Units are Unique Like Snowflakes


I had a mini database meltdown on the first day of field work and data entry. The specific problem with the database mostly involved how we were using it (and the limits on the particular tool we chose to use), but it highlighted the relationship between the unit as space and the unit as a procedural unit in intensive pedestrian survey. To put this another way, we can only walk the same unit once, and […]

Databases and Digital Natives for the Western Argolid


The last few days here in the Western Argolid have been punctuated by database development in the lead up to our first days in the field next week. I’m a bit terrified at the prospect of managing data for five field teams walking 20-30 units a day and producing 500-800 units per week. In a single week, the Western Argolid Regional Project will produce as much data as as my previous project, the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological […]
