TOPS 2000 - Session 46 Description
In preparation for our visit to the Cape Kumukahi site, Karen Meech will discuss the basic ideas behind surveying, and show people how to use our new surveying equipment - and electronic theodolite. When we go to the archaeological site, we will be trying to map the site and measure possible alignments in the early morning, in addition to taking sun sighting measurements. It is hoped that our colleague, Clive Ruggles, an archaeoastromer at Leicester University in the UK, will be coming to Hawaii to do some field work and will use TOPS participants as field assistants. This will be the first in a series of many follow-up activities.
Location - New Lecture Hall & Outside
