Research & Fieldwork
Prof. Bernard can take students to Italy for research with collections and sites, as well as site-specific archaeology at Populonia, for the next few years.
This project involves underwater and coastal survey of south-central Cyprus. Students will receive training in digital documentation techniques, survey methodology, data management, and artefact recording. For assessment in the field, students are responsible for keeping daily logs and submitting a final report of their involvement for the season.
This project could accommodate two MACS students, where they would receive training in archaeological excavation, and no prior experience necessary. Students would be supported through a combination of departmental travel awards and research funds.
This project offers architectural recording on the Aspis at Argos for two student assistants. Skills acquired would be precision survey with a dGPS and total station, GIS mapping, photography techniques, photogrammetric recording and processing, drone piloting, and drafting/inking of models for publication.
At this Bronze Age site in east Crete a multi-year project engages in excavation, post-excavation analysis, conservation, and site enhancement. Depending on the year, students would receive training in one or more of these domains.
This excavation project can commit to taking two graduate students every year, regardless of background or level of fieldwork experience.
