Crusader castle project could prove value of new technologies

Archaeologist Katharina Galor believes technology might just help eliminate hours of tedious recording and cataloging during a dig, and she plans to test her theory at Apollonia-Arsuf, a crusader castle in Israel.

The appearance of the castle, built in the mid 13th century, has been a mystery to archaeologists who have not been able to create a model of the structure. Galor and her team will make video recordings of work done at the site with hopes of replacing paper records.
