|ARCHAEOLOGY RESEARCH CENTER|
Sam Trevino is a senior at USC majoring in Interdisciplinary Archaeology and minoring in Business. After graduating, Sam plans on working in the field of Cultural Resource Management. For the last two and a half years Sam has been a part of the Undergraduate Research Associates Program working in the Archaeology Research Lab. He is an assistant on the Marash Project, a large project in the Kahramanmaras Valley in Turkey. He does technical drawings of pottery collected from different sites during the field excavation season. The illustrations follow a formula that illustrates certain aspects of the vessel shape, and are published in the excavation reports. They are used to comparatively determine trends or patterns in different types of vessels and from which sites they came from. Sam also worked this past spring with Prof. John Pollini on a research project studying the Getty Villa to determine which archaeological structures were used in the design elements of the Villa.
