Using Drone Lidar to Capture Architectural Complexity at the Kuelap Fortress, Amazonas, Peru
We report the results of drone lidar survey at a high-elevation archaeological site in the Chachapoyas region of Peruvian Amazonas. Unlike traditional airborne remote sensing, drone lidar produces very high-density measurements at a wide range of scan angles by operating at low altitudes and slow flight speeds. These measurements can resolve near vertical surfaces and novel dimensions of variability in architectural datasets.   Full Article- Journal of Field Archaeology

Peru: Documenting Archaeological Sites on Mountains and Slopes with Drones.
The addition of drones to the archaeologist's toolbox has brought about exciting new possibilities, particularly for field research and the conservation and protection of our built heritage. As drones become more widely available and effective, the challenge of precision becomes more important. Better georeferencing and higher-resolution outputs are the current thresholds.   Full article

Chachapoyas: Shubet Mountain, Peru's "Land of the Cloud People" 2003
The winding rivers and creek beds carve the terrain, headwaters of fuel for the mighty Amazon River. The few and far between roads and paths scar a landscape where ancient civilizations arose and fell. Remote and oasitic stone ruins hide beneath the bromeliads. A journey to Chachapoyas, Land of Cloud Peoples, and mysteries marked deep in a lost civilization that cries for discovery.

Pongo de Mainique Peru Pongo de Mainique Peru 1998
Our boat jerked quick to the side. At the bow I could see the whirlpool of foaming water in its fight against the outboard motor of our 10-meter canoe. The fern encrusted canyon walls, a sheer 1000 feet, closed in to our sides blocking the morning sunshine. The angry waters of the Urubamba River, birthed from the snowcapped peaks of the Andes, charged head-on to a portal just 50 meters wide through the mountain ahead.

Enowapi: Black Lagoon Peru 2003
Bon Bon, Indian explorer that he is, took this opportunity to follow a quest searching an area he drew from legends handed down by the local Indian shamans. Knowing that with only the highest river waters would Enowapi be accessible...Bon Bon persisted. Now a month later Bon Bon would lead us to our destiny:
