Digging for Digital Dirt
In fall 2020, Frey, a classical archeologist in MSU’s Department of Art, Art History, and Design, began to oversee the part of the excavations near Corinth, Greece, that had been sponsored by Ohio State University since 1987, but explored since 1952.
Charging forward, Frey began expanding the digital archive for the 60-year-old dig by accelerating the study and digitization of notes, photographs, field books, reports and artifacts that are held in a remote on-site storage at the Sanctuary of Poseidon at Isthmia.
Visitors to the website will see a carefully curated blend of black-and-white and color photographs taken throughout the dig’s collaborative history as well as educational and informative narratives about the Isthmia site and its mythology.
