This fall, I have had the opportunity to travel to many archaeological sites and museum (in Northern Greece, Central Greece, and the Peloponnese) with the American School of Classical Studies. I make small sketches of buildings and artifacts that catch my eye—often column capitals, distinctive masonry, and statues. It’s a handy routine to have since some museums in Greece prohibit photography (like the Acropolis Museum), but I also draw objects that I take pictures of. I make these sketches to remember specific 3D aspects of an artifact (volume, tectonics, plan) so that I can return to them for reference as part of my dissertation research. Here’s a glimpse of the four notebooks I’ve filled with notes and sketches so far (about one notebook for every month that I’ve been in Greece this year). It looks like I may need to go to the bookstore soon to get more of these little books.
