History in Three Dimensions
In Ginger A.’s Ancient World class, students were challenged to reproduce, three-dimensionally, a chosen aspect of an ancient African, Mesomerican, Andean, or Pacific Oceanic society.
Work was rich and varied, including:
- Ha Sikil Pa'k by Bailee C. '24 - this Mayan-inspired pumpkin seed dip reportedly looked better than it ultimately tasted
- Mayan temple construction by Joshua P. '24 - who finally found an academic use for all those stray Amazon boxes
- Nan Madol map by Sawyer S. '24 - repurposed legos served as volcanic rock in his construction of an ancient Micronesian city on Pohnpei
- An Axum obelisk, designed and built outdoors by Graham V. 24.
