Tracing Transformations at the Radiocarbon Conference in Trondheim

Lyndelle Webster is currently representing Tracing Transformations at the 23rd International Radiocarbon Conference in Trondheim (Norway). Lyndelle presents new radiocarbon results for Late Bronze Age Lachish and Azekah and we are very much looking forward to get new samples in our upcoming season!

Drones over Tel Lachish

 

Last week, Matthew J. Adams of the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research helped us to conduct a drone survey of Tel Lachish. The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum drone took over 1000 high-resolution aerial pictures, and using Agisoft PhotoScan, a detailed, geo-referenced 3D-model of the site was created. This model helps connecting past, current and future excavations.

Check out the 3d-model and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Tel Lachish (be sure to turn on the sound!).

 

We are most grateful to Matt Adams, the Albright Institute, and the Jezreel Valley Regional Project for sharing their technical knowhow and equipment!
