New Approaches in Digital Archaeology at Tel Azekah, Israel

This presentation examines the University of Iowa's CD, virtual reconstruction of Tel Azekah, located in the Elah Valley just west of Jerusalem after its initial two seasons of excavation. The presentation offers a new methodology for the systematic digital cataloging, visualization, and reconstruction of archaeological excavations as they progress.

He came to Iowa from the University of California, Los Angeles Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures.
