After two delays in service of the university and students, I am beginning a sabbatical year, one of the prime purposes of which is to put all the research from seasons at Hippos of the Decapolis into a final form. Over the next months, you will see many updates and changes to this site, as it will be one of the prime repositories for this material. I look forward to the opportunity.

When I started this archaeological project in 2002, the standard tool for creating galleries was Flash. 2020 is the end of Flash. So one of my projects this year is to use Lightroom to remake all the galleries on this site. Should be fun. Until that is done, I will be taking down the galleries.

Registering some 180 scans into a single model is a challenging project. I am using a combination of Autodesk Recap Pro and Leica Cyclone Register 360. I am rather pleased with the results so far. At this point most of my effort goes into learning how the software works and overcoming some corruption of scans. So, these first clouds are practice.
The black spots are gaps that are addressed in scans not yet registered and the tolerances are not yet where I want them. But I am confident in a rich end product.
