Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project and the New Media

The short weekend has given us a chance to upload some of the most recent new media treatments of our work here in Cyprus. 

Our filmmaker, Ian Ragsdale, has released two short pieces chronicling life on the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project.  The first two clips can be viewed on PKAP’s new YouTube channel.  Ian’s work has focused on the students so far and gives a great insight into how students and trench supervisors engage the work of archaeology.



We also have the second installment of our popular PKAP podcast series:

If you haven’t checked out our photographer (and Artist-in-Residence) Ryan Stander’s work, you are missing some great photographs.  Check them out both on his personal blog, Axis of Access,
and on the Pyla-Koutsopetria Graduate Student Perspectives Blog.

And we haven’t forgotten about the archaeology…

This week will be our most hectic so far.  Our goal is to bring at least 5 of our 6 trenches to completion before our hard-working group of student volunteers leave the field on Saturday.  We also have planned a half-day trip to Nicosia, our Bronze Age ceramicist, Mara Horowitz, will be arriving Wednesday, and we plan to push a last few trays of pottery collected in 2008 through preliminary analysis over the course of the next week.  We’re all tired, but excited to bring our short and exceedingly intense field season to a close.  Keep reading our blog here and elsewhere.  To read about the latest goings-on keep visiting the PKAP blog aggregator.
