amazing this was done with only 233 shots (i bet that actually helps here) beautiful!
Congratulations! We chose this synth to be featured on the front page of the site on September 11th, 2009. It will stay featured for part of the week.
Thanks Douglas and thanks for your email too. I'm going to read the paper you sent me. Cheers, David.
Hey David. You bet. I;ve added some highlights to try and help make sense of what you are seeing. This is "archaeologists archaeology," digging not so much for artifacts but incredibly subtle changes in soil color and texture.
A good overview of this project was written up by the Los Angeles Times, see http://www.cdarc.org/page/kpd0.
(But ignore the embarrassing sour grapes at the end, we are going to be able to say a great deal about these people once excavation and analysis is completed).
A local story gives more info at http://www.cdarc.org/page/5339.
Finally, highlights from our own publication are available here: http://www.cdarc.org/page/5339
, and a Native American perspective on this research is available as well at http://www.cdarc.org/pdf/09-01_enote.pdf.
Cheers, and thanks for giving us such a cool tool!
Doug -- could you please give us a link to the best general introduction to this research, and add a few highlights showing those canal cross sections? Very interested in understanding what you're learning with this dig. Thank you!
