Work of Jerrad Lancaster
Jerrad Lancaster is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Akron. He is a 2002 graduate of Green High School and has recently completed his PhD thesis at Royal Holloway, University of London, on the subject of Archaic period South-eastern Greek Sicily. His archaeological experience spans half the globe with time spent in Greece, Italy, Wales, and the US. Jerrad’s current research involves the uses of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) in archaeological survey, documentation and historical preservation. Through the implementation of photogrammetry, he has published 3D models of various objects, specifically those of local importance, including Franks Farm and the Lichtenwalter schoolhouse (https://sketchfab.com/jlancaster). Further, he has extended this to objects found within the Akins collection of archaeological material currently in the possession of the Department of Anthropology (https://sketchfab.com/UniversityofAkron).
