Pompeii: It's the world's most recognizable archaeological site. But did you know it was also the place where the iPad was first used as a field documentation tool. Archaeologists working at Pompeii have been pretty progressive in communicating their finds through new media as well. Working in this milieu of old and new is Dr. Steven Ellis. He directs the Pompeii archaeological research project at Porta Stabia. In this interview, he'll talk about the iPad project, including what it was like to be featured in an Apple ad campaign. Additionally, he'll explore other emerging technologies being used at the site and tell us the story about why he chose archaeology as a profession.
