Archaeological sciences summer school

École d'été de géoarchéologie et d'archéométrie

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, April 22, 2014


The purpose of the course is to expose students to interdisciplinary research that involves archaeology and the natural sciences in the field. The students will experience interactive work that combines excavation and analysis of materials using an on-site laboratory. The course will emphasize the inter-connection between laboratory analyses and the archaeological context, and will include fieldwork, laboratory work, and lectures.



A special excavation of a room of the Forum will be devoted to the on-site archaeological sciences excavation for the entire week in the morning. Collection and processing of samples will be part of the duties.


In the afternoon, in addition to the talks, laboratory work will deal with the samples collected, preparing the analysis and practicing in the interpretation of the results.


Guided visit to the site of Pollentia, M. A. Cau, site co-director.
