Radars for the Lost Ark

My good friend David Graves just returned from Turkey on a reconnaissance mission to Mount Ararat. David, with the Archaeological Imaging Research Consortium (ArcImaging), will be conducting an expedition to the peak of the biblical mountain and will be using ground penetrating radar for the first time on the icecap to search for any evidence of man-made objects, especially those made of wood. His trip dealt mostly with meeting with the Turkish government. See some photos of Ararat and Hittite ruins on his blog here.

Congratulations, David, on a successful trip. Godspeed in July!
