Ancient Corinth via Drone

After last month’s post about helicopter views of Corinthian coasts, I was pleased to discover Dronestagram, a site that allows owners of drones to share their photos and videos. This two minute sequence of the site of Ancient Corinth offers low-altitude coverage of the archaeological site as well as the Greek theater and Odeion. Now that the technology is available, expect many more of these in the future. These kinds of videos provide new perspectives on archaeological sites which will certainly be useful in the classroom.

    Thanks, Dave! Amazing visuals!

    p.s., the Athens material available on this site is pretty good, too.

      Thanks, Tom. I didn’t check out Athens but I suspected there was good coverage for other regions. This is great stuff.
