Workshop Details: Date: July 29th- August 9th, 2013. Place: Supraśl (Poland)
The main aim of the workshop is to promote the understanding of new methods in archaeology for data capture and processing, including new technologies in non-invasive archaeology (Part 1). Part 2 will be focused on excavations techniques and methods of data documentation.
The another aim of the school is to give students understanding of practical methods for data capture, processing algorithms and formal analysis of the results, as well as how variety of data can be used to develop appropriate archaeological inferences. The course considers both non-invasive methods as well as excavations techniques. The course will be taught using a combination of lectures, interactive sessions and fieldwork workshops. This course provides students with a detailed knowledge of the theory, method, equipment and software associated with so called field archaeology. It also allows students to develop key skills frequently expected in landscape archaeology as well as management of archaeological heritage.
The school is organised for 15-20 MA and PhD archaeology students as well as professional archaeologists mostly from Byelorussia and NE Poland working on archaeology of the region as well as willing to get knowledge on new techniques in field survey in archaeology.
