Strata: Portraits of Humanity, September 2019 (Packing for archaeology; drones and rock art in Iraq; Persian poetry and music in London)

(1) Dr. Chloe Duckworth, in her “ArchaeoDuck” series, suggests what to take when you're packing for archaeological fieldwork. (2) In the mountains of northern Iraq, researchers from Heidelberg University employ drones and photogrammetry to document ancient Mesopotamian rock art, rock-hewn tombs and reliefs of ancient kings. (3) Conductor Arash Fouladvand, historian of Persian Music, leads a London-based branch of the Bahar Peace Choir. We follow Arash as he takes the choir through an 1100-year-old poem by the famous Persian poet, Rudaki.
