Quarries and Itinera

Here is an agent put into Itinera.

 

Quarries and Itinera

It's been a little more than a month since I joined the Itinera project, and I am happy to say that there has been much progress made. Supriya and I have finished reading through the Minutes of the Royal Academy of Architecture and have finished entering agents into Itinera. An example is pictured above. In the next upcoming weeks, we will really have to work hard to finish putting in the entire trip that we have mapped out, put together our poster for our presentation, and finish up our abstract (which is actually due Friday). In my class related to the research, we worked on preparing our abstracts and "elevator speeches" about our research. I am extremely excited to present our hard work.

I have found that the hardest part of this project so far was actually reading the text and pinpointing the important information needed. One thing I was especially excited about, though, was realizing changes in the French language in the minutes and the modern version. This made it a lot easier to translate the text, as I realized that "mesme" was mean to be même (which means same). Simply understanding these differences allowed for quicker reading and comprehension. From this point on, I believe that the project will go quicker in getting the information for the trip into Itinera, as we already have it mapped out in our own notes.

Au revoir,

Victoria
