Introducing the archaeograph

I mentioned working on another web project. Over the past couple of years I’ve been thinking more and more about the craft of photography in the practice of archaeology. Mostly because I work with rock art where digital photography has become the most common (and sometimes the only) way of recording them. So I’ve set up a thinking space for archaeological photography, and thus, the Archaeograph:

This blog has a decidedly more tech and geek slant to it, talking about equipment, techniques and photographic experiments. Check it out, and if you’re so inclined, subscribe to it.

Hmmm… Eventually I’ll have to fit writing a thesis in between of all this!
