Drone & 3D Modeling Lecture and Workshop

Keynote Lecture: “Old questions, new tools: 3D modeling, aerial survey, and humanistic research”

Advances in automation have rendered digital replication of nearly anything — from objects to landscapes — within the grasp of humanists, even those working with simple tools on limited budgets. As with any methodological advance, the question is: what now? This lecture surveys a range of new digital methods in the context of my collaborative project which is aimed at understanding the archaeology of incarceration in the ancient Mediterranean world, and uncovering the experience of incarceration for its ancient victims.
