Digging remains and Biological Anthropology in Sanisera
It is difficult to find a course that allows you to explore both biological anthropology and archaeology where you can gain experience and knowledge in both excavating tombs with human remains and techniques used in excavating Roman structures. You will experiment in both archaeology and biological anthropology, two areas with many similarities, but also many differences when excavating and treating recovered archaeological material in the laboratory.
Digging Anthropology in the Sanisera Necropolis
Focuses on the excavation and study of inhumation tombs from the classical period.
Fieldwork in the Necropolis of Sanisera & GIS
Many students studying archaeology, anthropology and classics have participated as part of a research team. However, not many have experience in using a total station for creating plans or GIS for processing the large volume of information generated during an excavation. If you would like to enhance your studies and experiences in archaeology as well as be more competitive and efficient within your field, then with this course you will learn skills that will set you apart. Currently, using GIS to process collected data shows importance towards any type of research project, be it an archaeological survey or excavation. This program is advanced and specialized, focusing on extracting the maximum performance from software and technology available to archaeologist.
Conservation in Archaeology on the Dig of Sanisera
You can learn from the beginning conservation techniques and methodology. During this course you will have the chance to practice with archaeological remains dating from the Classical period, including Roman pottery, amphorae, glass, human bones, faunal remains, coins, metals, ivory, etc. You will learn how to treat them properly at the laboratory. The comprehensive experience that you will gain in this course will help you to decide if you want to pursue archaeology, conservation, or curation as a profession.
Conservation in Archaeology
Conservation is an integral part of the archaeological process and the post-excavation study of archaeological finds. During the excavation you will find urban structures, Roman graves and archaeological remains from the Classical period including Roman pottery, amphorae, glass, human bones, faunal remains, coins, metals –bronze, iron, silver-, ivory, etc. All these artifacts have to be treated in a particular way depending on the material they were made of, by applying a set of techniques and methods to preserve and protect them in perfect conditions against deterioration.
Focus on the recognition – unique in the world – of structures, mosaics, sculptures, amphora and Roman pottery at the Baia Underwater Park
