1. This was an animation class piece (using stop-motion) that was part of a larger project for Dr. David Soren of the University of Arizona's Classics and Anthropology Department.

    Dr. Soren is working on a video documentary on the origins of the Roman Empire and the early iron age. This animation shows a rotating view of a grouping of thatched huts typical of that period. Sheep and other farm animals were kept in square pens attached to each house. Smoke from the interior hearths escaped through openings in the gable at the end of the hut.

    The class was Animation I (ART306B) in the Fall of 2011. The class included the following students: Sara Welland, Katelyn Biben, Nick S. Diaz, Jacqueline Finn, Mike Hernandez, Kristin Howlett, Henry LaVoo, Charlie Makin, Joshua Meehan, Spenser Jordan Palmer, Chelsey Parmentier
    Lindsey Paige Pittman, Daniel Roper, Jasmine Sang, Shandi Wagner, and Mark Wang.

    Dr. Soren is working on a video documentary on the origins of the Roman Empire and the early iron age. This animation shows a group of early Roman workers smelting iron-ore into workable iron at a number of smelting furnaces. Bellows are used to heat up the furnaces to a very high heat which melts the iron-ore into usable iron and it's by-product iron slag.

  4. This was an animation class piece (using stop-motion) that was part of a larger project for Dr. David Soren of the University of Arizona's Classics Department.

    Dr. Soren is working on a video documentary on the origins of the Roman Empire and the early iron age. This animation shows a cut-away view of the insides of an early iron-age smelter. A smelter furnace melts crude iron ore into usable iron. Bellows are used to heat burning charcoal or wood to a very high temperature which causes the iron in the ore to melt down and pool into an area to the side of the smelting furnace. Slag is the unusable side-product of this process.

    The class was Animation I (ART306B) in the Fall of 2011. The class included the following students: Sara Welland, Katelyn Biben, Nick S. Diaz, Jacqueline Finn, Mike Hernandez, Kristin Howlett, Henry LaVoo, Charlie Makin, Joshua Meehan, Spenser Jordan Palmer, Chelsey Parmentier
