back from the Ukraine

I returned from another geophysics season in Ukraine on the 24th of July. I worked out there with Alex Turner (Soviet Al not the Artic Monkey) doing GPR ( Mala Ground Penetrating Radar) and Magnetometry (Geoscan FM36 Fluxgate Gradiometer). Last year we used a Resistivity machine (Geoscan RM15) and so where able to combine the results of the three methods to create a better picture of the archaeology that remains below the surface at the Akkerman Fortress. Alex and I are still in the process of interpreting the results and building a GIS (ESRI ArcGIS) map that includes all the geophysical survey illustrations / a DGPS (Trimble Differential Global Positioning System) / a Total Station survey and past and present maps. The results of which will be posted on my web site http://www.medievalarchitecture.net/Ukraine.html



Zotero is an easy-to-use yet powerful research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways. An extension to the popular open-source web browser Firefox, Zotero includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote)—the ability to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references—and the best parts of modern software and web applications (like iTunes and del.icio.us), such as the ability to interact, tag, and search in advanced ways. Zotero integrates tightly with online resources; it can sense when users are viewing a book, article, or other object on the web, and—on many major research and library sites—find and automatically save the full reference information for the item in the correct fields. Since it lives in the web browser, it can effortlessly transmit information to, and receive information from, other web services and applications; since it runs on one’s personal computer, it can also communicate with software running there (such as Microsoft Word). And it can be used offline as well (e.g., on a plane, in an archive without WiFi).

Graduate Junction

Graduate junction is a great new place for graduates to promote and share their research with other graduates. They say;

The Graduate Junction is a brand new site which aims to give research students an easy way of making contact with others who share their research interests no matter which department, institution or country they work in.

The site has been created by other research students, like you, who believe the site can grow into a really useful tool for postgraduates working in any field of research
