Students contribute to the written, photographic, and drawn records in addition to learning excavation techniques and post-excavation processes.

Tina Ross Archaeological Illustration
Tina Ross brings her artistic expertise to the Exhibit Hall. She will demonstrate how archaeological drawings bring artifacts back to life. Archaeological drawings use agreed-upon conventions to accurately represent artifacts down to the smallest detail. Photographs can be distorted or misleading, even when scales are used for reference, and do not always capture the artifactís material texture, pattern, or shape. Archaeological drawings highlight the objectís decoration, shape, manufacture, and theoretical reconstructions for further study.
Tina Ross has over 10 years of field experience, including excavations at Mitrou, the Livatho Valley Survey Project, the Pylos Tombs, Kourion, and many others. In addition to providing professional illustrations for publication, she also teaches workshops on archaeological drawing for beginners and advanced students. Throughout the Annual Meeting, she will be offering a limited number of appointment times for attendees interested in learning more about her workshops or consultation services.
