Modeling Space at Tell Timai: Composite imaging at Greco-Roman Thmuis, Egypt
Ancient Thmuis represents one of the best preserved examples of a Greco-Romano-Egyptian metropolis in the Nile Delta. However, preservation of the tell is variable, with sections on the periphery having been stripped by systematic looting of mud and red brick to buildings while in the center of the tell walls three stories tall and well-defined streets are common. Archaeological work and subsequent preservation have depended on a variety of imaging methods to reconstruct segments of the city. Recently, a quadcopter has been incorporated into the methods employed providing some outstanding initial results.
