Aerial, reconstructive Interpretations of Human History

Expeditions

  2019

As indicated below in our brief report about 2018 Jersey and Guernsey, UK we will be focusing this year more on the Ice Age as well as on Neanderthal man. Locationwise it will be Switzerland, where we also expect to take additional looks at newly discovered Roman sites.

  2018

Another stellar year with multiple excursions covering different kinds of areas in time, culture and geography. We collected materials to do research for years to come.

Expedition to Mexico

Early in the year we went to Central Mexico where the site "Virgen de la Canada" offers insights into ancient pyramids without the elsewhere ubiquotous heards of tourists. This was actually the second time one of our team members visited this place and we were able to take a good set of photographs and measurements to work on in our research facilities.

Expedition to Jersey and Guernsey, UK

The Channel islands of Jersey and Guernsey are rich with sites from history. Of particular interest to us was the site of Neanderthals (depicted here La Cotte de St. Brelade). This was the first in a series of Neanderthal related sites our team has and will visit going forward. 
Guernsey offered a glimpse into the Neolithic and therefore was on par with many of the sites in Brittany, France. 

2017

2017 was an exciting year for us: Not only did we launch this website but we also combined our efforts to undertake three different expeditions, which all have different areas and periods of interest:

Expedition to Bermuda

Expedition to "East Germany"

In March our team did a first real-life tests of the newly developed underwater drone in the Atlantic in the waters around the island of Bermuda. We researched three different wrecks and took underwater photographs to document their current state of decay. 
This expedition also used an aerial drone to get some air-borne images of two forts on the island. We were able to add images of the slave trade to our archive. 
We have been fortunate to witness the fall of the Iron Curtain. Some of us have been to the "Deutsch Demokratische Republik" and now that the Mauer is gone (ok, it has been gone for a couple of decades now, archaeologists think in much longer timeframes) we had a chance to visit several places of interest including prehistoric Bilzinghausen, Nebra and the cloister ruin of Paulinzella (depicted).

Expedition to Cahokia and beyond

One of our longer standing projects has been the study of the sites of Aztalan and Cahokia and their relationship to sites in Mexico. We focused our research on Aztalan in the past two years and in 2017 expanded them into Cahokia.  Our findings were published in "Ancient American" issue # 119.
