    Digitizing the past

    By Texas Advanced Computing Center
    Published: Sept. 19, 2011

    When Adam Rabinowitz was 15 years old, his aunt, an archaeologist, invited him to join her on a dig in Sicily.

    Twenty-three years later, Rabinowitz, now the assistant director at the Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICA) at The University of Texas at Austin, is still traveling around the world getting dirt under his nails. And though much remains the same about archaeology since he first picked up a duster brush, a lot has changed.

    Collaborating with the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Rabinowitz and his team work to develop high-tech, digital solutions to preserve ancient sites.
