[Reblogged from Bill’s personal blog] It’s taken me about five years to wrap my head around the landscapes of the Western Argolid. It feel like one of those crazy Möbius strips where space bends back onto itself and opposite points end up being on the same plane. Part of the challenge is that I’ve spent so… More Landscapes of the Western Argolid
[Reblogged from Bill’s blog] Yesterday, Costis Dallas and Seamus Ross from the E-Curators project visited the Western Argolid Regional Project study season to talk to us about our use of digital tools and digital practices. We spent most of the day in either formal interviews or informal conversations about how we used technology to produce know… More A Visit from the E-Curators Team and Digital Time
[Reblogged from Bill’s blog] The formation processes that produce the surface context studied through intensive pedestrian survey are really annoying. They hide things that you know MUST be there (like Late Roman material on a prominent coastal height overlooking a Roman to Late Roman settlement). They make visible things that have no rational explanation (like the famous one sherd… More Sometimes Survey Makes Sense: A View from Chelmis
WARP 2018: THE STUDY SEASON is over… sort of. I am still dealing with the data deluge and trying to rest up after a frantic end-of-season, and I’m even trying to catch up with all of the blog posts that Bill Caraher wrote about WARP. You should read them too. Here they are, in chronological… More Catching up with WARP
[DN: This was a post written for the CIG’s website] Our survey project, the Western Argolid Regional Project, or WARP, has just wrapped up the third year of fieldwork. Over three years, we’ve fielded 17 field teams, 62 field walkers and 12 team leaders from Canada and the US, and this remarkable group has surveyed nearly 8,000… More Three years of fieldwork in the western Argolid
Some photographs from the first full week of the Western Argolid Regional Project. Only two more weeks left! Only four more weeks left! More crenelation!
I’ve been thinking a good bit more about trash this summer and had the chance to check out two interesting assemblages of modern trash in the Argolid in our first week of field work. The first was at a crossing of the Inachos River in our 2014 survey area. The scatter of modern trash extends… More The Trash
This summer I picked up a cool little book on the ancient rivers of the Argolid in my favorite bookstore in Argos. It’s got some interesting stuff in it, including some reproductions from Christopher Wordsworth’s Greece: pictorial, descriptive, and historical (London 1840), which includes nearly 400 images, mostly wood engravings but also some steel engravings too. There are… More Some old images of the Inachos river valley
