The Centre for Maritime Archaeology Research Seminar series would like to announce a talk by Christopher Begley (PhD 1999, University of Chicago) entitled “3D Imaging for Archaeology using Structure Light Technology: Developments in Systems for Remote Areas, Hostile Environments, and Maritime Archaeology” on April 25 at 10:30 in the Centre for Maritime Archaeology, Avenue Campus, University of Southampton.
Dr. Begley is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Transylvania University. His research primarily focuses on Central and South America elite power strategies as well as digital recording methods in remote locations. This seminar will focus on recent development of a robust, high accuracy 3D imaging system for archaeological use in non-traditional environments. Specific case studies will focus on petroglyphs in remote areas of Honduras, Native American footprints in a North American cave, bronze warship rams from the First Punic War found off Sicily, Late Bronze Age mortuary caves in the Balearic Islands, and underwater applications from a Spanish site.
All are welcome to the seminar and lunch with Dr. Begley following the talk. If you would like to meet with Dr. Begley while he is here, please contact the CMA Seminar team.
