Marking the time
The NoGAP Project has now been running for five years. Three archaeological sites were excavated and thousands of samples collected. It is now time to pause. In the coming years we will not organize large expeditions. Shorter missions will be necessary to complete work done so far.
Food and Hindu traditions are now part of our daily routine (who can resist an afternoon chai?). Here in India we have had the opportunity to meet incredible people we will continue to work with in the next years. In short, we will miss what has become our second lovely home.
Although in some way the NoGAP comes to an end, work is far from finished. Now we need time to analyze the data, make interpretations and publish the results of our research (a very important part of our work).
Among other things, we will integrate data collected in North Gujarat within SimulPast; a broader project aiming at creating computer simulations of human behaviour starting from real archaeological data.
Thanks to everybody!
Messages posted for Recerca en Acció have been a very enjoyable way for us to share our experience with you. It also has served to think about our daily work in a different way. Sitting down every night, after work, may seem cumbersome, but we can assure you that we had a good time preparing messages and videos.
We would like to thank the coordinators of Recerca en Acció for the opportunity to participate in this great initiative and for their help with message editing.
During the five years of NoGAP lots of people have contributed their bit to make things go forward. We wish to thank people who participated in previous campaigns: Viky, Núria, David, Javi and Charlie; as well as Raju, Kaju, Shalim or Kani, who with their effort and work have made our fieldwork an unforgettable experience.
Also we would like to thank you for your loyalty to this blog. We hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as we did writing it. We wish you all a happy 2012!
