Summary of Fall 2020 Archaeological Mapping Lab Fall 2020 Activities

Dr. David Gilman Romano, Director of the Archaeological Mapping Lab, submitted the following report:

Ten students were employed in the Archaeological Mapping Lab during the Fall Semester 2020. The students include five UA Anthropology graduate students in the Mediterranean Concentration, Nicholas Jones, Laryssa Shipley, Lauren Sides, Lauren Tomanelli, and Alena Wigodner; one UA Classics graduate student; and one UA Architecture undergraduate student as well as two UA Classics MA alums from 2020. We also worked with one graduate student from the University of Aarhus, Denmark.

Laryssa Shipley is the Lab Manager this year, as my Research Assistant, and has done an excellent job. All of our work was carried out remotely and most of the students were connected to the lab via the UA VPN; all were connected via ZOOM meetings and, of course, email. The students were spread out all over the country and one was in Europe.

The students were able to carry out important work (GIS, digital cartography, spatial analysis, remote sensing, architecture, database) on a number of different projects including the Mt. Lykaion Excavation and Survey Project, the Parrhasian Heritage Park of the Peloponnesos, the Corinth Computer Project, and Digital Augustan Rome.  During November and December, we were able to finalize and submit two grant applications.
