Prof. Alicia Jiménez receives grants from the Gerda Henkel Stiftung and Duke’s Arts & Sciences Council

Renieblas Orthographic Map
Thursday, May 9, 2019

Prof. A. Jiménez worked last December on a photogrammetric study and a LiDAR map of the Roman camps near Numantia (Renieblas, Spain 2nd-1st c. BCE) with Profs. J. Bermejo (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid), D. Hernández and M. A. Moreno (Universidad de Castilla La Mancha). She has just been awarded two generous grants from the Gerda Henkel Stiftung and Duke’s Arts & Sciences Council to go back to the field with her team this summer and complete the field survey using terrestrial scanners in selected areas of the site.
   
The new orthographic map and digital reconstructions of the five overlapping camps have the potential to offer a more accurate representation of the Roman structures and provide archaeologists with precious data about the internal layout of Roman encampments during the first phase of Roman expansion outside the Italian peninsula.
