Last week the student went out to survey a local gravel collection site for a taster session on how to use a Total Station as part of Archaeological Surveying. They were joined by Dr. Chad Hill who specializes in Middle Eastern Archaeology and Aerial Survey. Earlier in the day he had given a lecture on the various methods and techniques of archaeological surveying. Later during the field exercise, he showed the students how a quadcopter can be employed to take aerial photographs.
Hi! I am Kat Warren and I am the Teaching Assistant for the Spring 2014 field school. While I am here I am also involved in the African Fossils Project (africanfossils.org) where I am 3D-scanning modern African fauna, fossils and archaeological material. I am a recent graduate in Archaeological Science from the University of Sheffield and my current interests lie in the evolution of cognition, and primate behaviour as a means to understand the cognitive frameworks of our earliest ancestors.
