Work on IUP’s Archaeology Island has been a bit slow this semester. Most of this is my fault, I have not had as much free time this semester as I had hoped, even though I am teaching a reduced load since I taught an overload in the fall. My lack of free time means that I haven’t been able to help build structures or hunt up images for the design guys from the Applied Media and Simulation Game Center. I am hoping that I will be able to catch up over spring break, but we will see if that happens.
Since I haven’t been keeping up with my SL work, the students from the AMSGC have been working with Dr. Sara Neusius, a faculty member in IUP’s department of Anthropology. They have been building a Second Life exhibit based on a real world exhibit "Indiana County Archaeology: Revealing the Native American Past" that was shown at IUP’s University Museum back in January. I am going to help with the text panels when they finish the village display, so I better catch up on all my other work.
If you get a chance and are looking for something to read, I ran across an interesting article on-line about an ancient Greek tomb discovered on the island of Lefkada.
