If you are interested in bioarchaeology, how to excavate, classification of archaeological material from the Roman world as well as how to process this information using technical drawing, photography and digital illustration then this is the course you are looking for. This course accommodates participants with or without previous experience.
Learn how to excavate is the most important thing for a student who wants to become a professional archaeologist, however during the last years we have noticed that both the archaeological investigation projects and the archaeological management projects are becoming more demanding and strict with the information gathering that take place in an excavation.
In the necropolis of Sanisera, without much physical exertion, and due to the stratigraphic conditions, you easily find and excavate tombs and their contents. You will excavate tombs and learn anthropological techniques used to recover human remains and grave goods. In the biological anthropology laboratory, you will learn how to treat and classify bones and grave goods recovered from the necropolis.
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.
This course takes place on a Mediterranean island, among a pristine and unique landscape, surrounded by the sea.
Previous knowledge or experience in archaeology or computer systems is not required.
