Sagalassos excavations and Google Earth

July 12th, 2006 by Ross Scaife

Troels Kristensen (Towards an Archaeology of Iconoclasm) has a post about resumption of the excavations at Sagalassos and the presentation of that site in Google Earth. The latter is very nicely done, with a map overlay, geophysical map, and pointers to 17 specific buildings or locations. These link to field notes and ground-level QTVR panoramas when available (just as I’ve linked certain Minoan sites in my Bronze Age Crete placemarks to Bruce Hartzler’s Metis panoramas for those sites).

Oh, and speaking of Google Earth: someone posted a particularly clear placemark for Ephesus recently.
