Research in digital archaeology, heritage, and marginalia
Archaeology in Antartica
One of my former students (and current friends!) Allie is working with a biology research team catching fish in Antartica. In her spare time she’s documenting some of the historic structures around McMurdo Station. I don’t want to say too much, as I believe she’s in the early stages of research…but I don’t have to say much, just look at these lovely photos!
I’m amazed…and jealous! Hopefully I’ll get an update about her Antartica project when she gets back.
