As part of the Art Department's annual Art Bash, we will have displays and activities that involve students in processes that take place after an archaeological dig:
A CAD video will play featuring a digital walk-through of the now-destroyed Olmec site of La Venta in Mexico. (Image based upon actual measurements from archeological field note books whose data was originally published incorrectly.)
A puzzle in which students can take (photocopies of) building rubble and try to piece a Maya temple back together, just as art historians and archaeologists do in the field and in the lab.
A cataloging activity that shows students the process of organizing artifacts after the dig using actual objects and fragments from the Isle of Rhodes.
