Seeing Seven Centuries from Above

Italy-Vulci 3D Flyover

The work of the Dig@Lab, directed by Maurizio Forte, William and Sue Gross Professor of Classical Studies and Art, Art History & Visual Studies, was featured in “Seeing Seven Centuries from Above,” part of a series of essays on drone technology in research, “Research from a New Point of View,” in Duke Stories.

Forte leads a team, including AAHVS doctoral student Katherine McCusker, who was quoted in the article, which uses drones and other high-tech resources to efficiently examine Italian landscapes in search of clues to ancient civilizations.
