General Information What you will learn 
Useful Information Staff Sess. & Cost 

Coordinates importation from Total Station to AutocadFieldwork focuses on the excavation of an urban area where a monastery has been found. In the laboratory students will learn to classify artifacts, including Roman pottery, numismatics and faunal remains. Participants will also learn and use mapping tools applied to archaeology as well as topography, photogrammetry and archaeological recording systems with GIS (Geographic Information System).

TombsFieldwork focuses on the excavation of funerary structures, specifically inhumation graves. In the laboratory students will learn to classify artifacts found, mainly human skeletal remain. Participants will also learn mapping tools applied to archaeology as well as topography, photogrammetry and archaeological recording systems with GIS (Geographic Information System).

Total Station

This course focuses on underwater survey, Mediterranean ship building techniques, and ARGIS software. The aim is to identify underwater structures of the Roman city of Sanisera and shipwrecks, as well as anchors and amphorae related to those shipwrecks and its cargoes. Then, participants will create an archaeological GIS platform from the applied recoding system of the ancient port of sanisera.

 


042 Total Station, AutoCAD & Archaeological Techniques of drawing, photography and digital illustration

Total Station

This program is divided in two main parts: Using an Electronic Total Station to create maps in a CAD drawing file and laboratory techniques used with archaeological material. In the first part of the course, participants will prepare a Topographic Data Base of the site using an Electronic Total Station, in order to create a DEM (Digital Elevation Model) and archaeological maps in a CAD drawing file. In this way, students will also learn how to use an Electronic Total Station, as well as software like AutoCAD. In the second part the students will practice the techniques that are used in an archaeological laboratory so that they can register the main objects found on a site with the highest quality. The development of those techniques will help us to obtain drawings, photographs and digital archives that will be extremely useful for the elaboration of publications, reports or further studies.
