As our new project archaeologist in Digital Heritage and Humanities Collections, Jaime Rogers is helping his team collect 3D terrestrial and GPS data for many projects – but his main role is directing ongoing excavations at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS). “CCAFS is a very exciting place to work as an archaeologist. The island has been occupied for thousands of years, and affords the opportunity to learn about unique aspects of human culture – from pre-Columbian shell mounds to historic fishing villages to launch complexes,” he shares.
