This course is designed for students that have participated in an archaeological excavation and would like to learn about archaeological tools used to document research information collected with rigor and quality, thanks to the handling of a Total Station and the field data processing translated to AutoCAD software to create stratigraphic maps of the excavation.

Due to current needs of the archaeology world the archaeologist must acquire more experience and knowledge in the laboratory. It´s basic to catalogue all the material from the excavation efficiently and effectively by elaborating drawings, photographs and digital documentation that allow us to develop a rigorous research, for that reason the use of an appropriate image software has become essential for the elaboration of any report, study or publication.
