Do you want to get more experience in post-excavation tasks, including processing and storage of materials, photography and drawing of finds and creation of 3D models?
Then…THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!
: 1)September 26th, 2016 to October 714th
This course, only taking place in one three-week session in September-October 2016, offers an opportunity for students to learn about the different post-excavation tasks that can be carried out in any archaeological laboratory, including processing of materials, classification and inventory of pottery, archaeological photography and drawing.
Also, part of the course will be focused on the documentation of archaeological materials, by learning how to take photos of materials as well as creating 3D models through photogrammetry, and how this information can be used and displayed, both for scientific and educational purposes. Students will also devote part of the course to learn the basics on conservation and restoration of archaeological artifacts.
The theoretical part of the course will consist in a series of lectures which will help out students in understanding how to perform the different laboratory tasks properly. The practical side of the course will be carried out by students through the different tasks related to post-excavation work, always under the instructors’ guidelines.
All artifacts that will be processed during the course have been located at the site of Sa Cudia Cremada, a Bronze and Iron Age site where materials from different cultures can be found (native or talayotic, Punic, Roman, Islamic…).
Weekly excursions to different museums on the island and archaeological sites will contribute to the students’ knowledge about post-excavation duties as well as the amazing Archaeology of Menorca.
