Chance Coughenour

Initial Training Network for Digital Cultural Heritage, Institute for Photogrammetry, University of Stuttgart
Marie Curie Fellow, E.U. FP7 Programme
Chance received his BA in History at West Virginia University where he focused on the historiography of the British Empire in Hong Kong. Later, he obtained his MA in Archaeology and Heritage at the University of Leicester in England. The primary objective of his MA research was focused on Classic Maya landscape archaeology and ritualistic assemblages. Recently, he finished a specialized Master’s course in Virtual Archaeology and Heritage directed by the Spanish Society of Virtual Archaeology. Over the past few years he has participated in the topographic survey and excavations of a Classic Maya commoner site with the Rio Bravo Archaeological Survey in northwestern Belize. Since 2012, he has been the Mapping Director of the project. He has also taken part in other archaeological projects in the Moche Valley of Peru and a Spanish Civil War battlefield. His recent experimentation of using UAV’s for purposes other than archaeology has brought him to area of UXO detection.
