Ben Gorham, JF '17, helps to preserve ancient artifacts with a new technology

January 26, 2016

Ben Gorham, JF ‘17, is using cutting-edge technology to study the ancient ruins of Morgantina, an archaeological site in east central Sicily, southern Italy. Using a combination of aerial drone and on-the-ground photography, Ben and his team in Sicily have made precise topographic images of their findings. And now they are using those images to create 3-D-printed, scale models of their findings.
