American Excavations at Morgantina:

Contrada Agnese Project

Dig Life

Zen and the Art of Drone Repair in Rural Sicily

This past summer I had the pleasure of working on the Geospatial Team of the Contrada Agnese Project at Morgantina. As part of the Geospatial Team, I was trained by Ben Gorham to operate the team’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), a quadcopter affectionately known as Tina.

Dog Day Aidone

I went into this summer knowing very little about where I would be staying. Very surprisingly to those outside of the field, this is not a question that really comes up when considering various projects. You are on excavations to dig; location and housing is a secondary concern. I knew I would be staying in a town called Aidone, not far from the ancient site of Morgantina. . . .
