Ancient Town and Modern Scholarship
John McEnroe, the John and Anne Fischer Professor of Fine Arts, recently discussed his archaeological work on the important Bronze Age Town at Gournia, Crete, in a lecture at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
McEnroe is bringing our understanding of Gournia into the 21st century using GIS analysis, 3-D photogrammetry and drone-based photography. The town was originally excavated more than a century ago.
While on leave from Hamilton, McEnroe is the Elizabeth A. Whitehead Professor at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, America’s oldest overseas research institute.
