American Excavations Samothrace
The American Excavations Samothrace project developed best practices for digitally recording the discoveries of archaeological excavation through work at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on the Greek island of Samothrace of the American Excavations Samothrace. The team includes archaeologists, conservators, geologists, geomorphologists, geographers, numismatists, and architects, as well as students in all of these fields.
The current project website presents the current research of the American team working in the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace.
American Excavations Samothrace is engaged in several projects designed to deepen our understanding of the terrain and built environment of the Sanctuary. ECDS supports the continued development of the 3D model of the Sanctuary of the Great Gods.
