Abstract: This is an image from Anemospilia taken during an archaeological visit to Crete led by Professor Miriam Clinton. Anemospilia is the site of a famous ritual that was disrupted by an earthquake ca. 1450 BCE. The excavator speculates that the ritual may have involved human sacrifice. Over the course of this visit, Kayce Boehm '19, Alex Howell '17, Clare Misko '17, and Erica Smythe '17 worked at the Petras Cemetery excavations for six weeks. The site is an important and elaborate Early-Middle Minoan (ca. 2200-1700 BCE) cemetery, which was also the site of a Late Minoan (ca. 1300-110 BCE) settlement. The students also used a DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone purchased by The Department of Art and Art History in 2016. Students in Greece learned to operate the drone and use it to create videos, aerial photos, and 3D models.
